Fire Retardant Materials

Price: $299.95

Category: Books: Nonwovens & Technical Textiles

Fire Retardant Materials provides a comprehensive source of information on all aspects of fire retardancy, emphasizing the burning behavior and flame retarding properties of polymetric materials. It covers combustion, flame retardants, smoke and toxic products in general, and material-specific aspects of combustion in relation to textiles, composites, and bulk polymers.

The book includes the latest research in the nanocomposites, making it an essential source for anyone working with, studying, and developing fire retardant materials.

The text considers material properties first; why materials may need to be fire retarded; how this may be undertaken; and the consequences. It highlights the juxtaposition of increased demands for safety and increased concerns about the risks to health and the environment caused by using flame retardants and fire retardant materials. The book discusses the fundamental issues that determine whether or not a material is flammable and how flame retardancy may be conferred both mechanistically and by means of established flame retardant systems. It also explores emerging methods and anticipated changes for performance-based tests.

Written by experts from a wide range of inter-disciplinary subjects, Fire Retardant Materials represents a compilation of information never before found in one source. Readable and user-friendly, it addresses not only the advances in this field but also concerns and needs of the future.
