Overview

Non-flammable polymers are polymers that are resistant to degradation and burning at high temperatures. In recent years there has been an increasing demand for fire retardant versions of a range of plastics. These types of polymers are particularly important in areas where there are enclosed spaces such as in skyscrapers, boats, trains and aeroplanes. Non-flammable polymers are also found in adhesives, electronic insulation and in military applications such as canvas tents and in domestic applications such as furniture, clothes, bedding, upholstery and electrical goods.

This book discusses the mechanisms of fire-retardancy and how it can be achieved in polymers. There is extensive coverage of the applications and uses of fire-retardant polymers. There are also three Appendices, which give listings of all the Standards relevant to fire-retardancy of polymers.

This book will be of interest not only to those working in the production of fire-retardant polymers but also to design engineers and producers in the polymer fabrication industries.
