Abstract:

Fire safety regulations are becoming more and more stringent; consequently, researchers have to develop more efficient flame-retardant polymers. In order to do so, they are investigating flame-retardant nanocomposites and, more precisely, carbon nanotubes-based nanocomposites. This chapter briefly presents the fire issues and the general state of regulation. Then the fire mechanism and the ways to counter it are discussed, followed by a section specifically on carbon nanotubes’ applications. Carbon nanotubes can enhance ...
