An authoritative reference
… a wealth of interesting information,
technical rationale and quality text and diagrams.
- detailed analysis of the burning
behaviour and flame retarding properties of ploymers, composites and
- covers smoke and toxic gas
- analysis of material performance in
- helps development, design and modelling of fire retardant
This is a comprehensive source of information on all
aspects of fire retardancy. Particluar emphasis is placed on the burning
behaviour and flame retarding properties of polymeric materials and textiles. It
covers combustion, flame retardants, smoke and toxic products generally and then
goes on to concentrate on some more material-specific aspects of combustion in
relation to textiles, composites and bulk polymers. The latest developments in
all areas of fire retardant materials are covered including research in new
areas such as nanocomposition.
Fire retardant materials is an
essential reference source for all those working with, researching into, or
designing new fire retardant materials.
