Synthesis and Characterization of Caged Phosphate Microparticles Coated with Melamine Resin Based on Composite Properties of Materials
In order to develop efficient “three in one” intumesent flame retardants, a novel caged bicyclic phosphate, tris(1-oxo-2,6,7-trioxa-1-phosphorbicyclo[2.2.2]octane methylene-4)phosphate (trimer) as the core material was encapsulated by melamine resin and etherified melamine resin as nitrogen resource respectively via in situ polymerization. The two microencapsulations were characterized by SEM, XPS and thermal gravimetric analysis. When they were used as intumesent flame retardant in epoxy they all exhibit good properties. With 20wt% loading amount the flame-retarded epoxy all can pass UL94 V-0 rating.
