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… 

Review on Chemical Reactions of Burning Poly(methyl methacrylate) PMMA

Chemical reactions of burning Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) are reviewed in this paper although kinetics of thermal decomposition are believed to be fairly simple. Basically, there are three

Study of combustion intermediates in fuel-rich methyl methacrylate flame with tunable synchrotron vacuum ultraviolet photoionization mass spectrometry.

TLDR
The results show that combustion of MMA not only reduces soot emissions, but also has low concentrations of some potential toxic by-products.

Effect of Pyrolysis Temperature on the Electrical Property and Photosensitivity of a PAN-PMMA Derived Carbon Fiber

Fibers are promising materials being utilized in electronics, principally in the areas of capacitors and sensors. In this study, we examine the effect of pyrolysis temperature on the electrical

Chlorinated thermal stabilizer for optically clear PMMA

Optically clear poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) blends with HET-EG oligoester (synthesized by condensation of chlorendic acid with ethylene glycol) at six different compositions were prepared by

Experimental investigation of effects of variation in heating rate, temperature and heat flux on fire properties of a non-charring polymer

During fire, charring and non-charring polymers undergo reactions in the solid phase (pyrolysis) and in the gas phase (combustion). These reactions can be modelled using computational fluid
