A study on the flame-retardance of poly(vinyl chloride) incorporated with metal hydroxystannates



In this article some metal hydroxystannates were synthesized. It shows that the ZHS with Fe2SnO3.3H2O imparts fairly good flame retardance to the plasticized poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC). The thermal stability and flammability on heating and burning were explored by TG/DTA. Study on mechanical properties of PVC had also been performed. © 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
