Review of bio-based flame retardants

A thirty-one page review paper, based on nearly eighty publications, summarises developments and perspectives for bio-based PIN flame retardants for synthetic polymeric materials. Renewable PIN FRs discussed are based on: tannic acid, phytic acid (a plant molecule containing 60% phosphorus by weight), isosorbide, diphenolic acid, DNA, lignin and β-cyclodextrin.

Modified rectorite improves PIN intumescent coating

The natural mineral clay rectorite (which contains aluminium, calcium, silicon and sodium) was modified by reaction with sodium pyrophosphate then tested at 10% in a waterborne PIN intumescent fire retardant coating, consisting of ammonium polyphosphate, melamine, titanium oxide and pentaerythritol.
