The influence of parameters of manufacturing hybrid flame retardant additives
containing graphite on their effectiveness (in English)

Polimery 2016, No 5, 327


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2016.327

Summary

Syntheses of hybrid flame retardant (HFR) additives were done on a semi-industrial scale. HFRs were obtained by in situ synthesis of melamine cyanurate in the presence of expandable graphite. HFRs have been used to reduce the flammability of selected polymers: polyester, epoxide, polystyrene. Compositions characterized by high oxygen indexes (in the case of the polyester compositions – 39.8 %) and improved horizontal FH-1 and vertical V-0 flammability parameters were obtained. The influence of the production parameters (including methods and parameters of drying), the grain size and expansion of the received HFRs on their effectiveness in the reduced flammability of selected plastics were investigated.
Keywords: hybrid flame retardant additives, expandable graphite, melamine cyanurate, flammability, polystyrene, polyester resin, epoxy resin
