Synthesis and characterization of phosphorus-containing, silicone rubber based flame retardant coatings
The synthesis and characterization of two biphenyl phosphates of different structures, as substrates for preparation of two series of functionalized addition silicone rubbers of different crosslink density and amount of pendant functional groups, is presented. Obtained materials were applied as flame retardant protective coatings for cotton fabric and characterized by TG and MMC techniques. The relationship between thermal stability, flame-retardant properties, and structure of prepared silicone rubbers is discussed.
