Applied Minerals Inc. (OTCQB:AMNL) issed a letter to shareholders outlining business activities and highlighting the growth and potential in the plastic flame retardant additive market. They believe that they have found an effective replacement for Alumina Trihydrate (ATH), phosphorus-based additives and Magnesium Hydroxide (MDH) that can be more widely used.

As quoted in the press release:

Mineral-based flame retardants, such as Alumina Trihydrate (ATH), phosphorus-based additives and Magnesium Hydroxide (MDH), represent roughly 65% of the total volume of flame retardant additives consumed. The required loading level of these additives needed to achieve acceptable flame retardancy in a polymer is very high (typically 65% for ATH and MDH), which can meaningfully impair the mechanical performance of the polymer. As a result, the use of these additives is limited to certain polymers and applications.
