Chlorendic Acid (HET Acid)
Chlorendic acid is industrially produced by Diels-Alder reaction. It is a versatile intermediate for many polymers; owing to its hight chlorene content of 54.4%, Chlorendic acid can impart polymers with excellent flame retardant, anti-crossive, and resistance to moisture, alchohol, alkaline and acid.
It will form covalent bonds in polymer matrix when it is added as curing agent or flame retardant, so the resulting products have good stability, no leaching and environment friendly.
