Behavior of intumescent epoxy resins in fireproofing applications

Intumescent epoxy resins are used commercially for fireproofing because of their ability to swell. The swelling action is initiated to shelter the materials beneath the resin from any potential heat source. In this study, the thermal degradation of the intumescent epoxy resins was researched, paying ...

Prediction of the gasification rate of thermoplastic polymers in fire-like environments

This article studies the accuracy of using models to predict the mass loss of four polymers when they are exposed to fire like conditions. The researchers collected material property data; including density, thermal conductivity, reflectance and absorptance, heat capacity, and decomposition kinetics on each of ...

Performance Assessment of Passive Fire Protection Materials

Three reference passive fire protection materials were tested to determine the effect that fire exposure has on their thermophysical properties. It was determined that the thermophysical properties during fire exposure have a significant impact on the performance of the materials. The knowledge of how the ...

The Effects of Thermophysical Properties and Environmental Conditions on Fire Performance of Intumescent Coatings on Glass Fibre-Reinforced Epoxy Composites

The reaction to fire properties of three commercial coatings designed for steel structures were investigated. The coatings in this study were covering a glass fiber-reinforced epoxy composite. It was determined that the thermal barrier effectiveness of these coatings was dependent on the degree of expansion ...

Characterization of the carbonization process of expandable graphite/silicone formulations in a simulated fire

Preventing steel from losing its strength during fires is crucial for safe evacuation and effective fire fighting. One of the most common protective coatings applied to steel and other construction materials today is intumescent paint. In this study, researchers created a potential new protective coating ...
