Towards selection chart of flame retardants for natural fibre reinforced polypropylene composites

The market of natural fibre thermoplastic composites NFTC is still developing. However, it is limited by the progress in optimising the process parameters and defining the functional additives. One of the most needed additives is the flame retardant FR material. Addition of excessive FRs can decrease the mechanical properties.
