The burning behavior and combustion mechanism of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) were studied by using cone calorimeter, mass spectrograph and gas chromatograph. Main combustion mechanisms of PMMA were reviewed. Results indicated that PMMA would burn steadily under low radiative heat flux; or with thicker samples. The yields of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide would not be changed. Under high heating rate, there are three broad stages. Firstly, upon heating by external sources, PMMA would… Expand
