Flame Retardant Polymer Nanocomposites takes a comprehensive look at polymer nanocomposites for flame retardancy applications and includes nanocomposite fundamentals (theory, design, synthesis, characterization) as well as polymer flammability fundamentals with emphasis on how nanocomposites affect flammability. The book has practical examples from literature, patents, and existing commercial products. Readers can design new work based upon the material in the book or use it as a handy reference for interpreting existing work and results.(a) Polymer-clay nanocomposites have been used by Toyota for barrier and underhood engine parts since the 1990s. See Okada, A.; Fukushima, ... Recent usage has been in 2004 Hummer H2 and Chevrolet Impala. http://www.schwab- kolb.com/hummer/en/hummer01.htm. Beyer, G. Flame ... Lewin, M.
