31. Assessment of Factors Affecting Fire Performance of Mattresses: A Review
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1740
Published: 3/20/2012
Authors: Shonali Nazare, Rick D Davis
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 number of deaths per 1000 mattress/bedding fires ...

32. A Review of Fire Blocking Technologies for Soft Furnishings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1728
Published: 12/20/2011
Authors: Rick D Davis, Shonali Nazare

33. Exposure and Fire Hazard Assessment of Nanoparticles in Fire Safe Consumer Products: Interagency Agreement Final Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7805
Published: 8/4/2011
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon Seok Kim, Richard H. Harris Jr., Marc R. Nyden, Nasir M. Uddin, Treye Thomas
Abstract: An innovative technology was evaluated to generate fire and health safe soft furnishings. Nanoparticle-based thin coatings on a polyurethane foam and nonwoven barrier fabric were applied using Layer-by-layer (Lbl) assembly. This is the first report ...

34. Characterization of Nanoparticle Release from Polymer Nanocomposites Due to Fire
Published: 7/6/2011
Authors: Nasir M. Uddin, Marc R. Nyden, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Engineered nanoparticles, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanofibers (CNFs) are increasingly being used as fire retardants and performance additives in polymeric materials. However, because of their small size and ability to interact with biologi ...

35. Reduced Flammability of Polyurethane Foam Using a Carbon Nanofiber-based Multilayer Nanocoating
Published: 4/10/2011
Authors: Yeon Seok 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 ...

Published: 2/2/2011
Authors: Mauro Zammarano, Douglas Matthew Fox, Szabolcs Matko, Takashi Kashiwagi, Jeffrey W Gilman, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Scientists are shifting their attention towards technology sustainability and sustainable materials, specifically in terms of energy and environmental impacts. The flame retardant community is also more concerned about these aspects. The recent bann ...

37. 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 Seok 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 ...

38. 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 Seok 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 ...

39. Propensity of Nanoparticles to Release from Residential Soft Furnishings
Published: 6/21/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yeon Seok Kim, Marc R. Nyden, Richard H. Harris Jr.

40. Ultraviolet Weathering of Firefighter Protective Clothing
Published: 6/4/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin, Chiao-Chi Lin, Sylvain H. Petit
Abstract: Exposure to simulated ultraviolet sunlight at 50 C and 50 % relative humidity caused a significant deterioration in the mechanical performance of polyaramid and polyaramid/polybenzimidazole based Outer Shell fabrics used in firefighter jacket ...
