DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.1999.656


The principles underlying flame retardancy imparted to polymeric materials are discussed. Major fire retardant groups used for polymeric materials are described with particular reference to aluminum and magnesium hydroxides as inorganic compounds and halo and organophosphorus compounds. Fire-retardance synergism is exemplified by antimony-halogen, phosphorus-halogen and nitrogen-phosphorus systems.

Keywords: fire retardants for polymers, metal hydroxides and halo and organophosphorus compounds as fire retardants, synergism in fire retardancy
