  This book presents an overview of recent academic and industrial research efforts concerning halogen-free flame-retardant (FR) polymers and their nanocomposites. It summarizes the synthesis methods for various types of halogen-free FR polymers and their nanocomposites, and critically reviews their flame-retardant behavior, toxic-gas evolution. Phosphorus-based flame retardants act mostly in the solid phase of burning polymeric materials and cause the polymer to char, thus inhibiting the pyrolysis process necessary to feed the flames.

Not surprisingly, flame retardant materials are used wherever an application exists that has a fire risk scenario. This means that wherever a polymeric material is used near a potential fire source (spark, open flame, or heat source), some level of fire. Fire Retardancy of Polymeric Materials (2nd Edition) Details When dealing with challenges such as providing fire protection while considering cost, mechanical and thermal performance and simultaneously addressing increasing regulations that deal with composition of matter and life cycle issues, there are no quick, one-size-fits-all answers.

Flame retardants based on wheat starch modified with phosphate/urea systems were tested for the first time as additives for wood fiber material. Their flame-retardant properties were extensively characterized with small burner and smoldering tests, thermogravimetric analysis, and cone calorimeter, as well as pyrolysis combustion flow calorimeter.

Demand for nonhalogenated flame retardants in wire and cable applications has been increasing considerably in recent years due to regulation and environmental and health concerns of halogen-based flame retardants. As a result, nonhalogenated phosphorus flame retardants are increasingly being used as the more environmentally friendly.
