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

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 CNTs. Thermal conductivity of nanocomposites was measured using a thermal analyser with the transient plane source method. Epoxy with APP and OMPOSS had increasing thermal conductivity below the glass transition temperature (Tg) but slowed above Tg. When APP and CNTs ...

Flame Retardant, Heat Insulating Cellulose Aerogels from Waste Cotton Fabrics by in Situ Formation of Magnesium Hydroxide Nanoparticles in Cellulose Gel Nanostructures

Aerogels are promising thermal insulators because of their low thermal conductivity, durability and eco-friendly nature. However, aerogels become a problem because of their highly flammable properties. In this study, flame retardant cellulose insulators were formed from scrap pieces of cotton. Firstly, an NaOH/Urea solution was combined with the scrap pieces of cotton to create a nanoporous three-dimensional cellulose gel. This gel will ultimately serve as a template for the ...
