-Particularly suitable as an ”acid donor” for intumescent coatings thanks to its low water solubility. Steel structures coated with intumescent paints can meet the requirements of fire resistance classes specified in EN, DIN, BS, ASTM and others
-Non-halogenated flame retardant with favorable environmental and health profile

Applications of Exolit AP 468:
Exolit AP 468 (TP) can be used for all applications ammonium polyphosphate is suitable for. 
In cases where a specific phosphorus content is required to obtain the desired effect, the lower phosphorus content of Exolit AP 468 (TP) should be compensated by increasing the amount of product added. 
Exolit AP 468 (TP) can be used advantageously in intumescent coatings where the ammonium polyphosphate is required to have extremely low water solubility and where lower heat stability at temperatures above 300 °C contributes to more rapid foaming of the coating.

Intumescent coatings
On account of its low water solubility, Exolit AP 468 (TP) is particularly suitable as an ”acid donor” for intumescent coatings. 
Other essential components of intumescent systems include a binder, a carbon donor (e.g. pentaerythritol) and a blowing agent (e.g. melamine). 
On exposure to flame, the intumescent coatings form a carbonaceous foam which effectively shields the underlying material from temperature increases. 
Steel structures coated with intumescent paints can meet the requirements of fire resistance classes specified in EN, DIN, BS, ASTM and others. 
The application of Exolit AP 468 (TP) based intumescent coatings on wood or plastics enables these materials to qualify for Building Material Class B (DIN EN 13501-1). 

Intumescent coatings are needed for external use in regions with challenging high humidity conditions. 
Intumescent coating formulations with standard encapsulated APP can create blooming or bubbles and loose its effect as flame retardant under these conditions. 
A well accepted test is the water ponding test, also known as “pool-test” or so called “dunkin’-cookie” test. 
Exolit AP 468 (TP) meets these demanding requirements and is well suited for all IC systems for external use. 
Exolit AP 468 (TP) imparts a good flame-retardant effect to adhesives and sealants when it is incorporated into the base formulation at the rate of 10 - 20 %.

Polyurethane foams
Exolit AP 468 (TP) is a suitable non-halogenated flame retardant for polyurethane foams. 
If handling of Exolit AP 468 (TP) as a solid is not possible we recommend the dosage of the flame retardant by preparing an Exolit AP 468 (TP)/polyol-suspension. 
To prevent the solid from settling the Exolit AP 468 (TP) suspensions should be stirred or circulated by pump.

Other applications
Exolit AP 468 (TP) has an excellent flame-retardant effect in cellulose-containing materials such as paper and wood products. 
With chipboard products the B classification according to DIN EN 13501-1 can be achieved by adding 15 - 20 % Exolit AP 468 (TP).
