Abstract:

The flammability characteristics of a number of epoxy resin formulations and glass fiber-reinforced epoxy resin composites have been evaluated by thermal analysis, limiting oxygen indextemperature index, flash ignition, and smoke density measurement techniques. Results have indicated that appropriate flame-retardant additives or halogenated monomers should be incorporated into the matrix resin to increase material survivability and reduce resin combustibility.
