Predicting thermally thin burning of polymer using TGA/DSC

The flammability properties of pure Nylon 6 and Nylon with nano-clay of 5 % are examined in this study, TGA/DSC data were obtained with a variety of heating rates. The decomposition rate was found from the analysis of TGA data based on the mass loss fraction. The rate of reaction was described by a first-order Arrhenius equation in terms of the active species and the char fraction…
