Flame Retardancy- a Comprehensive Review of Mechanism, Material, and Fire Testing

EasyChair Preprint no. 12427

5 pagesDate: March 10, 2024


The goal of this review is to make the field better and easily approachable of “flame-retardants for polymeric material.” As a different element/compound that emerges with the polymeric materials and influences the properties of that material. It is a revolutionary development in material science and technology. These additives are affecting the mechanical, and thermal properties and flame-retardant performance. Flame retardant materials and their mechanism along with the fire testing methods are reviewed. First, the mechanism of flame-retardant material involves combustion and formation of deferent layers. Then, Flame-retardant materials like metal, halogenated compounds, and phosphorus-based materials with their fire testing processes. The most widely used additives like Metal hydroxides, and metal carbonates also the behavior and performance of the fire are described in this review. As a result, high-performance flame-retardant polymer composites may be extendable and implemented in the production of polymeric materials.

Keyphrases: alumina trihydrate (ATH), ammonium polyphosphate (APP), Flame-mechanism, limiting oxygen index (LOI%)
