Safer flame retardants that reduces smoke release from in-room textiles


Boron Polymer Flame Retardants for Cellulose Textiles

Flammable textiles pose a significant threat to human lives during a fire. Existing phosphorus flame retardants (FR) for textiles generally release large amounts of deadly smoke in fire. Such smoke and phosphorus FRs may accumulate in the environment and disrupt the balance of aquatic ecosystem, resulting in algae blooms and fish kills. Consequently, we developed boron polymers flame retardants. It is applied on cellulose fabrics by padding and low temperature curing. Compared with conventional FRs, it is more washable, durable and efficient in flame and smoke inhibition, greatly reducing smoke release in fire by 80%.
