Three different fire-retardant chemical
formulations were used in treatments: a mixture of BX and BA ([Na.
Firefighters bombarded the flames from the air with water scooped from lakes and with sticky fire-retardant chemical
However, 160 and 180 [degrees]C drying temperatures significantly affected values of the fire-retardant chemical
treated specimens (Table 3).
The various fire-retardant systems were found to reduce plate shear properties for plywood more than flexural shear properties depending on the fire-retardant chemical
and its chemical loading level.
The fire-retardant chemical
studied consisted of high purity GUP, boric acid (B), and a minor amount of additives.
Another type of fire-retardant chemical
, which emerged in the 1990s, is melamine, which basically contains nitrogen and its combination with phosphorus.
More than 1,100 firefighters have been assigned to the blaze, backed up by bulldozers, water-dropping helicopters and airplane tankers carrying fire-retardant chemicals
are added to make the product fireproof,
In an actual mission, a C-130 equipped with MAFFS is capable of dropping 2,700 gallons of fire-retardant chemicals
However, this year, thanks to fire-retardant chemicals
from Liverpool-based company Proventec, the goat survived and has now been stored in a secret place until December, 2007.
We are concerned about the use of fire-retardant chemicals
and encourage manufacturers to minimize their use," said Brian Siger, chief of the California Bureau of Home Furnishings and Thermal Insulation.
