Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This important updated addition to "Fire retardant materials" provides a comprehensive account of the advances that have occurred in fire science in relation to a broad range of materials. The manufacture of fire retardant materials is an active area of research.

The first part of the book reviews the advances that have occurred in improving the fire retardancy of specific materials, ranging from developments in phosphorus and halogen-free flame retardants to the use of nanocomposites as novel flame retardant systems. Part one concludes by addressing key environmental issues, such as environmentally friendly flame resistant textiles and the recycling and disposal of those textiles.  The second group of chapters examines fire testing issues and regulations. The third and final section addresses the application of fire retardant materials in such areas as composites, automotive materials, military fabrics and aviation materials.
