21. Factors Influencing the Smoldering Performance of Polyurethane Foam
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1747
Published: 9/26/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Roland H. Kraemer, Rick D Davis, Jeffrey W Gilman, Shivani Navin Mehta
Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate whether polyurethane foam (PUF) could be produced as a standard reference material for ultimate use in a standard test intended to ensure the smoldering performance of commercially available upholstered ...

22. Assessment of Factors Affecting Fire Performance of Mattresses: A Review
Published: 9/3/2012
Authors: Rick D Davis, Shonali Nazare, Kathryn M Butler
Abstract: An in-depth analysis of U.S. residential fire statistics shows that although the total number of fires and deaths due to mattress fires has dropped as a result of several regulatory approaches, the mattress/bedding fires continue to account for one ...

23. Accelerated Weathering of Firefighter Protective Clothing Containing Melamine Fiber Blends
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1751
Published: 8/14/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: In this study, environmentally stressed OS fabrics containing melamine fiber blends were evaluated for thermal and mechanical properties that are critical to the protective performance of firefighter turnout gear. Environmental stress factors ...

24. Accelerated Weathering of Firefighter Protective Clothing: Delineating the Impact of Thermal, Moisture, and Ultraviolet Light Exposures
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1746
Published: 6/27/2012
Authors: Rick D Davis, Shonali Nazare, Joannie W Chin
Abstract: Previously we quantified the chemical and mechanical deterioration of polyaramid and polybenzimidazole-based protective clothing fabrics that resulted from concurrent thermal, moisture, and simulated sunlight exposure. This paper reports on individu ...

25. Innovative Approach to Rapid Growth of Highly Clay-Filled Coatings on Porous Polyurethane Foam
Published: 6/11/2012
Authors: Yeon Seok Kim, Richard H. Harris Jr., Rick D Davis
Abstract: : An innovative twist to fabricating layer-by-layer coatings resulted in transparent, high-content clay coatings on porous polyurethane foam. The addition of an anionic poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) monolayer between anionic clay and cationic branched-pol ...

26. A review of fire blocking technologies for soft furnishings
Published: 4/23/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Fire barrier fabrics are expected to play an increasingly important role in complying with existing and proposed soft furnishing flammability regulations. The number of commercial fire blocking technologies is large in order to accommodate the vast ...

27. Strategic Roadmap for Fire Risk Reduction in Buildings and Communities
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1130
Published: 4/18/2012
Authors: Anthony P Hamins, Jason D Averill, Richard George Gann, Nelson P Bryner, Rick D Davis, David T Butry, Alexander Maranghides, Jiann C Yang, Daniel Madrzykowski, Matthew F Bundy, Samuel L Manzello, Jeffrey W Gilman, Francine K. Amon, William E. Mell
Abstract: The burden of fire on the U.S. economy continues to be large, comprising approximately $280 billion annually, or 2 percent of GDP. Over the last 30 years, civilian fire deaths and injuries have decreased due to the efforts of many people and org ...

28. Durable nanoparticle coatings to reduce polyurethane foam flammability
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Yeon Seok Kim, Rick D Davis
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=909889

29. Flexible polyurethane foam with well characterized and reproducible smoldering
Published: 3/24/2012
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Szabolcs Matko, Rick D Davis, Roland H. Kraemer
Abstract: Smoldering is a self-sustaining heterogeneous oxidation reaction that induces a slow, low temperature, flameless combustion.1 Flexible polyurethane foams (PUF) are particularly prone to smoldering due to their high air permeability and low density. I ...
