Smoke Suppressed Flame Retardant Unsaturated Polyester Resin Compositions

Smoke suppressed flame retardant thermoset resin compositions comprise smoke suppressant bicyclic phosphate compound(s), flame retardant(s) and unsaturated polyester or other thermoset materials. These compositions exhibit a reduced tendency to smoke under conditions of burning. SUGGESTED CITATION Smoke Suppressed Flame Retardant Unsaturated Polyester Resin Compositions. E. J. Termine, N. A. Favstritsky and K. G. Taylor, United […]

Polymers of Brominated Styrene

A process for the solventless polymerization of brominated styrenes includes blending monomers of brominated styrenes with a polymerization initiator, feeding the monomer/polymerization initiator mix into a prepolymerizer wherein the monomers begin to polymerize, and feeding the monomer/polymerization initiator mix and the partially polymerized bromostyrene into a screw-type extruder to drive the polymerization to a high […]

What is Produced Water?

Produced water is any water that is conveyed to the surface from an oil or gas reservoir during oil and gas production. This water will be from one or more of the following sources: > Connate water which is present in the reservoir prior to production > Condensed water which is condensed from the produced […]

High Impact PVC/Polycarbonate Alloy Compositions

A preferred rigid thermoplastic resin composition having high impact strength and resistance to thermal distortion includes a vinyl chloride resin/polycarbonate alloy and at least 3 parts by weight of butadiene-modified acrylic per 100 parts by weight of the alloy. A particularly preferred thermoplastic resin composition includes the alloy and both butadiene-modified acrylic and ethylene-vinyl acetate […]

Flame Retardant Polypropylene Molding Compositions

Described are polypropylene molding compositions which have surprisingly good physical properties in combination with flame retardancy, which include copolymers represented by the formula: ##STR1## wherein n is >1, P is isotactic or syndiotactic polypropylene, and S is a grafted side chain having brominated monomeric units of the formula: ##STR2## wherein x=1 to 4, R.sub.1 is […]

Low Smoke Intumescent Flame Retardant For Thermoset Composites

The use of a new low smoke intumescent flame retardant for thermoset composites is described. This material, CN-1197 flame retardant, is a phosphorous-based compound which is very effective in promoting an intumescent char on the polymer surface during flammability tests. SUGGESTED CITATION Low Smoke Intumescent Flame Retardant For Thermoset Composites, E. J. Termine and K. […]
