Developments in flame retardants for interior materials and textiles

Abstract [en]

This chapter discusses several types of flame retardant systems that are feasible for textiles. The main categories of chemical-and non-chemical flame retardant systems are discussed, so called barrier technologies, their basic mechanisms during fire, and compatibility with natural and polymeric textile materials. The chapter also includes a market review of and forecast information on the most common flame retardants on the market. Finally, developments of new flame retardant systems are described, especially designed for requirements of efficiency, health and environmental friendliness. One of the largest areas of research and development involves the use of nanotechnology to impart flame retardancy and increased functionality to textiles and other areas. However, technical and commercial viability is still limited and their future use in commercial settings remains questionable; only a few combinations of nano flame retardants with traditional flame retardants have met performance requirements. © 2009 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
