Flame Retardant Chemicals and Potential Health Hazards

Flame retardant chemicals are widely used in consumer products made with potentially flammable materials. Treating component materials with these chemicals help protect end users in the event of a fire. Many of these substances are, however, known to be harmful to human health, and are thus regulated.

Tris (1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (TDCPP) (CAS No. 13674-87-8) was added to the California Proposition 65 list as of October 2011. TDCPP is a flame retardant commonly used in furniture such as couches, chairs, pillows, etc. Studies did in fact show that this flame retardant is carcinogenic. ATS has developed the capability to not only test for TDCPP, but some additional flame retardant chemicals that are listed below.
