Effect of iron(III) acetylacetonate additive on selected properties of composites

of low density polyethylene with magnesium hydroxide (in English)

Polimery 2010, No 9, 685


DOI: dx.doi.org/10.14314/polimery.2010.685

Summary

The preliminary investigation of the effects of using iron(III) acetylacetonate (acacFe) in low density polyethylene (PE-LD) composites with magnesium hydroxide (MH) after different modifications on flammability was conducted. The results showed that employment of a small amount of acacFe in composites with MH, modified with a silane compound (Magnifin H10A) may reduce the total burning times for a whole series of samples in the vertical position and it may increase tensile strain at break (eB) of samples.


Keywords: iron(III) acetylacetonate, low density polyethylene, magnesium hydroxide, fire retardation.
