Objective: The concept of the present project WOOD-FLARETCOAT is to solve the problem of producing improved flame retardant coatings for wood products, through the development of non-halogenated flame retardant systems based on inorganic flame retardant nanofillers (nano magnesium hydroxide, huntite and hydromagnesite) functionalised with ROs and incorporated into several water born polymeric matrix, to constitute composites.
Depending on the intended industrial mineral use, natural brucite competes for its share of the market with synthetic brucite, commonly referred to in the manufacturing industry by its chemical formula, magnesium hydroxide, and with other minerals and compounds such as magnesite, dolomite, huntite, hydromagnesite, MgO, CaO, zeolites and others.
AD 180) a larchwood box contained about 10 kg of huntite, probably originally magnesium, which could have been used as a pigment or as a medicament (Zecchini 1982: 133-68).
A mixture of huntite and hydromagnesite, Ultracarb imparts a flame retardant action when mixed into polymers by means of the evolution of carbon dioxide and water at temperatures above 225 [degrees] C.
Therefore it can be concluded that the MgO existing in the Magnesites and Huntites in the mentioned Ophiolitic regions and other Ophiolitic areas have been originated from ultramafic rocks.
