Abstract
Polyureas are a very popular family of polymers because of their desirable properties such as toughness, durability, absence of volatile organic compounds and the ability to build thick films. However, their use is somewhat limited because of their poor fire characteristics. Specifically, they burn easily and produce a lot of smoke. A wide range of flame retardant additives were investigated in an attempt to improve the flame properties of the polyurea. Various combinations were explored and the flammability properties of the polyurea were tested using cone calorimetry. All of the combinations of flame retardants explored improved the flame properties to some extent.
