Synergism and Flame Retardancy

  • Y. P. Khanna
  • Eli M. Pearce

Abstract

This chapter is a review of the concept of synergism and its applicability to the flame retardation of polymers. Literature available on this subject has been analyzed to arrive at some understanding of the phenomenon and its mechanistic basis.
