31. Reduced Flammability of Polyurethane Foam Using a Carbon Nanofiber-based Multilayer Nanocoating
Published: 4/10/2011
Authors: Yeon S. Kim, Rick D Davis, Jaime C. Grunlan, Amanda A Cain
Abstract: For the first time, Layer-by-layer (LbL) assemblies made with carbon nanofiber (CNFs) are shown to improve the fire performance of polyurethane foam. The (359 ± 36) nm thick four bilayer coating of polyethyleneimine/CNF (cationic layer) and poly(ac ...

33. Fabrication, Characterization, and Flammability Testing of Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Layer-by-Layer Coated Polyurethane Foam
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1676
Published: 9/15/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon S. Kim
Abstract: The research presented here is the first report of fabricating mulitwalled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) based thin coatings on polyurethane foam (PUF) using Layer-by-Layer assembly, and using MWCNTs to reduce the flammability of PUF. The (440.6 ± 47.1) n ...

34. Impact of Carbon Nanofiber Layer-By-Layer Coatings on Polyurethane Foam Flammability
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1674
Published: 9/2/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon S. Kim
Abstract: This is the first reported use of Layer-by-Layer (LBL) assembly to fabricate thin film coatings on polyurethane foam, of incorporating carbon nanofibers (CNF) into LBL fabricated coatings, and of using LBL fabricated coatings to reduce the flammabili ...
