Reaction to fire of an intumescent epoxy resin: Protection mechanisms and synergy

Author(s): , , ,

This article investigates the effects of two types of nanoparticles, OctaMethylOligomericSilsesquioxanes (OMPOSS) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs), in a model epoxy resin. Intumescent phosphorous-based flame-retardant (APP) was also incorporated with the ...
