Pinfa-NA (Phosphorus, Inorganic and Nitrogen Flame Retardants Association North America) is a non-profit trade organization that brings together and represents manufacturers and users of the major flame retardant technologies.
Pinfa supports fire safety through innovative, reliable and sustainable fire performance solutions, using products based on halogen free phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N) and inorganic compound (metal ions, hydroxides). They work closely with the founder, Pinfa EU, a Sector Group of Cefic (the European Chemical Industry Council). Pinfa-NA sponsors and participates in conferences on flame retardants and end uses, industry and regulatory organizations and we produce educational brochures relating to flame retardant technology and markets.
Pinfa North America represents the manufacturers and users of non-halogenated phosphorus, inorganic and nitrogen flame retardants (PIN FRs). The members of pinfa share the common vision of continuously improving the environmental and health profile of their flame retardant products. Therefore, pinfa members seek to dialogue with the users of PIN FRs in order to identify their needs and technologies they are looking for. Pinfa also co-operates with national & supranational organisations (EU, OECD, United Nations) & other industry associations, consumer organisations & non-governmental organisations and will ensure the development of scientific knowledge related to the whole life cycle of PIN FRs.
