Flammability characteristics of polyurethane foams has been discussed by comparing oxygen index values of rigid polyurethane foams with those of other polymeric materials as well as by evaluation of the composition and toxicity of the gaseous products of combustion. The effectiveness of some added fire-retardants in respect to self-extinguishing properties of polyurethane foams, toxicity index and smoke-formation of the gaseous products formed during thermal decomposition at 500°C and combustion at 800 °C, has been presented.
