Due to tightened environmental regulations on halogen type flame retardants, the portions of those based on phosphorous compounds that are non-halogen type is rising. When producing functional film, the physical and thermal properties become distinctly different depending on the amount of Red-phosphorus(RP) addition which causes flame resistance. The physical properties of resin fall in big scale when too much flame retardants are added, and it is hard to be applied to functional films such as shrink or anticorrosive film. The purpose of this research is to study the effects on mechanical, physical, and other properties of RP-LDPE films by changing the RP-MB contents. The LDPE film used for this study was produced through blow-type injection molding. The flame resistance was VTM-0, and the tear resistance showed inverse trends of MD and TD. Contraction percentage showed no relationship with the amount of RP content, but the anti-corrosive property showed 0.05 % better result than the national anti-corrosion shrink film reliability standard.
