1. Recent Advances in Flame Retardant Polymer Nanocomposites
Published: 1/22/2001
Authors: Jeffrey W Gilman, Takashi Kashiwagi, A B. Morgan, Richard H. Harris Jr., L D. Brassell, W H. Awad, Rick D Davis, L Chyall, T E Sutto, Paul C Trulove, H DeLong
Abstract: A new approach to address the ever increasing demand for higher performance flame retarded products has recently focused on use of mica-type clays nano-dispersed in commodity polymers. These "nanocomposites" exhibit the unusual combination of reduce ...

2. 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
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=909984

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. 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 ...

6. Accelerated weathering of polyaramid and polybenzimidazole firefighter protective clothing fabrics
Published: 5/10/2010
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 and p ...

7. 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 ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 ...
