Flame-retardant polymer materials

Polymer materials are plastics and can be divided into four categories: Thermoplastics, elastomers, thermoplastic elastomers, and thermosets. Flame-retardant polymer materials are plastics that are fire resistant and exhibit a higher level of fire safety.

Flame retardancy plays an important role in fire safety because not only does it reduce the risk of fires breaking out, it also prevents them from spreading. Flame retardancy plays a major role in public transportation.
