Synergy between Nanometric Alumina and Organoclay in Conventional Fire Retardant Systems for Ethylene–Vinyl Acetate

Hydrated mineral fillers like aluminium hydroxide (ATH) or magnesium hydroxide (MDH) are used in the cable industry as flame retardants for polyolefins such as ethylene–vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers. The very high filler loadings usually required to obtain satisfactory fire properties,1,2 mean this...
