The prevailing mechanisms for halogen and phosphorus flame retardancy are reviewed. Halogens act in the vapor phase and phosphorus can act in either the vapor or condensed phase depending on the specific phos phorus compound and the chemical composition of the polymer. Halogen- antimony synergy is discussed. Convincing evidence is presented for bromine- phosphorus synergy in specific polymers. The mode of decomposition of polycarbonate is shown and the effect of salts of organic acids in… Expand
