Flame retardant finish for textiles

Flame retardant finish for textiles based on hybrid polyphosphazenes

The research project focused on the development of an environmentally friendly, permanent flame retardant finish for preferably technical textiles. By using synergistic effects resulting from the interaction of two chemically different compounds, it was possible to significantly increase the flame retardant effect while at the same time reducing the amount required without significantly affecting the textile properties. To achieve this goal, cyclotriphosphazenes were selected as flame retardant components, which show this effect in combination with SiO2-containing compounds.
