Title: High Throughput Techniques for Fire Retardant Materials Development
Published: January 05, 2010
Abstract: None was required. Here is the last paragraph of the introduction. In this chapter are examples of how we used HT to accelerate knowledge about polymer materials. The first case study describes the development and application of HT tools and methods to accelerate our understanding of polymer fire performance characteristics, such as minimum flux for flame spread. The second case study describes the development of HT tools and methods to create and characterize coatings with gradient curing accelerator concentrations. Though fire performance testing was not applied in this study, the HT tools and methods discussed are the foundation required for HT coating fire performance studies, such as evaluating flame retardant type and concentration on the intumescent behavior of a coating on a steel girder.
