Abstract:

This is the first volume in a series. The fire safety aspects of polymeric materials are examined with primary emphasis on human survival. Other volumes in the series deal with test methods, specifications and standards, special problems of smoke and toxicity, fire dynamics and scenarios, and applications to aircraft, buildings, vehicles, ships, mines, and bunkers. An executive summary volume has been added to the series. In this volume the data is presented for polymers natural and synthetic in accordance with their form or conditions of use, i.e., fibers, foams, elastomers, plastics, fire retardant coatings.
