Final Project: Fire Retardant Polymers

Definition

  • “Flame-retardant”/ “Flame resistance”: understood to be resistant to catching on fire, but level of resistance varies
  • Implied meaning: self-extinguishing
  • “Flame-retardant” does NOT mean noncombustible
  • Risk still present in materials (but lower than in other materials)¹

Applications

  • Clothing: fire-retardant for a certain length of time. Usually a short length of time in casual clothing. Higher level of resistance required in fire fighter uniforms.

- Children’s sleepwear - Casual shirts, pants, etc. - Fire fighting overalls

  • Industrial

– construction: “Fire doors” and other materials in buildings to retard fire.
