Abstract
The main work of this thesis is to study and discuss flame retardant properties of the flexible polyurethane foam (FPUF) added with borax as flame retardant. The flammability parameters, including limiting oxygen index(LOI), rate of heat release (RHR), total heat release (THR), total mass loss (TML) and mass loss rate (MLR), yield of CO, yield of CO2, smoke production rate (SPR) and total smoke production (TSP) were recorded simultaneously. The thermal degradation of the FPUF samples was studied by TG.
