Recent Advances in Flame Retardancy of Textile Related Products

This Special Issue of  Polymers  is the result of the scientific work and subsequent discussions and collaborations that took place during four years (May 2012–May 2016) of the COST Action MP1105 "FLARETEX: Sustainable flame retardancy for textiles and related materials based on nanoparticles substituting conventional chemicals". The Action involved 30 countries and more than 850 participants attended the 20 organized events up to December 2015; four events including the final conference are planned for 2016. The participants included post graduate students, early career researchers, established academics, engineers, and researchers/technologists from industry. The work done by the members of this Action from 2012 until 2016 is an important source of information regarding recent developments in the area of fire safety, and environmentally friendly flame retardant solutions for textiles and related materials.

This Special Issue of  Polymers  is devoted to the “Recent Advances in Flame Retardancy of Textile Related Products", the theme of the COST Action MP 1105. This Special Issue will include papers with the most recent advances on Thermal Stability and Fire Retardancy of Textiles, Polymer Blends and Composite Materials. The publication will respect all rules and procedures requested by the journal and by the Editorial Office of MDPI. On behalf of the Guest Editors, we would like to invite you to submit your unpublished and original results which may be part of this Special Issue.
