Polymer combustion processes. Part II. Ignition of polymers

DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.1999.381


Ignition of polymers is reviewed and analyzed, and a theoretical description is given for ignition and self-ignition of polymers. Ignition criteria are determined, induction time for ignition is discussed, and combustion of polymers is characterized quantitatively in terms of various oxygen indices (Ol, ŁOI, ILOI). Ignition interval (limits) and combustibility of polymers are discussed in relation to flammable gas mixture composition.

Keywords: polymers, combustion, ignition, induction time of ignition, oxygen index
