Abstract

In this study, flame retardant properties of plastic paint material via different flame retardant minerals were investigated and tried to be developed. In this context, composite materials were obtained by adding different amounts of environmentally friendly (halogen-free) and nanosized flame retardant materials such as huntite/hydromagnesite, antimony (III) oxide and boric acid to paint material. And then these composite materials were characterized by XRD, DTA-TG and surface roughness. Candle flame test standards were also performed to examine flame retardant properties of these composite materials. After the results of the performed tests, composite materials were determined to exhibit excellent flame retardant properties.
