Sulphate-Based Flame-Retardant for Handmade Mulberry Paper
Handmade mulberry paper was coated with flame retardants reagent: ammonium sulphate, at the various concentrations. The properties of mulberry paper, i.e. rate of water absorption, rate of flammability, flash point and mechanical properties expressed as Young’s modulus were studied. Mulberry paper coated with sulphate-based compound was not flammable and the rate of water absorption was decreased, while the elasticity was increased.
