IMPROVING THERMAL RESISTANCE FOR POLYMERIC MATERIAL REINFORCED BY FIBERS BY USING OF FLAME RETARDANTS FROM ANTIMONY TRIOXIDE

Abstract

This study introduced a material combined between these characteristics , this material is antimony trioxide. In the present study , the preparation method of antimony trioxide and manufacturing method to form insulation layer from this oxide as a thickness of coating layer (3mm) were expressed , which paste on the composite material consist from unsaturated polyester resin and glass fibers type-R , which acts as a paste and hold material to the insulation and flame retardant oxide. Thermal erosion test was done with gas torch to evaluate the performance of the antimony trioxide efficiency to thermal insulation and flame retardancy. The result obtained from thermal erosion test done at (2000°C) were showed that the antimony trioxide efficiency of as a flame retardant material .
