Application of Calculus Equation in Solving Thermal Decomposition Kinetics Parameters of Fire-Retardant Foam
The fire retardants were used in flexible polyurethane foam (PUF) to get fire retardant PUF, whose kinetic parameters activation energies (E) were calculated by Ozawa integral method and the Kissinger differential method. The results show that the correlation coefficient (R) is above 0.95, which shows good reliability of the two methods for solving E. E for the fire retardant foam is decreased by 80 kJ•mol-1, which shows that the fire retardant can catalyze decomposition and carbonization of flexible PUF.
