Flame retardancy of polylactide: an overview

Author affiliations

Abstract

The paper reviews the different methods for flame retarding polylactide (PLA). They are critically discussed based on the open and patent literature. No real specific methods have been developed for PLA but some approaches provide high performance and especially intumescence. The mechanisms of action remain similar to those observed in other polymers.
