The use of polymers by their flammability - they may indeed
initiate or propagate fires. Halogen-based retardants are providing
unsatisfactory, despite their effectiveness and versatility, due to
associated problems with health and environmental impact.
Intumescent systems are an alternative investigation, and Fire
Retardancy of Polymers: The Use of Intumescence is the first book
on this fascinating subject. These materials from a blown
protective cellular char on thermal degradation, which is not only
effective but also environmental friendly. The mechanisms involved
in the process and the analytical techniques used for the
characterisation of the charred materials are presented from
international studies. With extensive references, this book
provides a comprehensive and up-to-date view on this emerging
field. It will be a useful tool for further research and
development work by many professional and researchers in industry
and academia with an interest in polymer science and safety
