42. Effects of Accelerated Ultraviolet (UV) Weathering on Firefighter Protective Clothing Outer Shell Fabrics
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1657
Published: 2/25/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Joannie W Chin, Chiao-Chi Lin
Abstract: The Outer Shell of the jacket and pants of the firefighter s protective clothing is constructed of a fabric that is commonly a blend of polyaramid, polybenzimidazole, and/or poly(melamine-formaldehyde) fibers. The Outer Shell contributes to the ther ...

44. High Throughput Techniques for Fire Retardant Materials Development
Published: 1/5/2010
Authors: Rick D Davis, Richard E. Lyon
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 meth ...

46. High Throughput Flammability Characterization Using Gradient Heat Flux Fields.
Published: 12/1/2005
Authors: Jeffrey W Gilman, Rick D Davis, John R Shields, Richard H. Harris Jr.
Abstract: The quest for small-scale flammability tests useful for predicting large-scale fire test performance is an enduring undertaking. Often, this work is motivated by limited access to larger quantities of samples, in the case of materials development ef ...

48. Flammability of Polymer Clay Nanocomposites Consortium:Final Report
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Published: 4/4/2005
Authors: Jeffrey W Gilman, Takashi Kashiwagi, A B. Morgan, Rick D Davis, Richard H. Harris Jr., L D. Brassell
Abstract: In 1997 NIST reported that polymer layered-silicate (clay) nanocomposites exhibit reduced flammability, in the form of reduced heat release rate (HRR). The unique character of this new approach to flame retard polymeric materials was the dual benefit ...

50. Dielectric Spectroscopy During Extrusion Processing of Polymer Nanocomposites: a High Throughput Processing/Characterization Method to Measure Layered Silicate Content and Exfoliation
Published: 9/1/2004
Authors: Rick D Davis, Anthony J. Bur, M M McBrearty, Y E Lee, Jeffrey W Gilman, P R Start
Abstract: Dielectric spectroscopy was conducted during extrusion processing of polyamide-6 (PA6) and layered silicate/polyamide-6 nanocomposites. Dielectric dispersion parameters were identified that appear sensitive to layered silicate concentration and degre ...
