Low fire hazard textile materials for shipbuilding
Authors: N.L Konstantinova, LS. Semibratova, N.A. Tereshina, A.O. Shashkov


The article considers the issues of fireproof textile materials (TM) application in their use as interior decoration onboard a ship. The study provided the evaluation of the fire hazard of different kinds of TM, researched their flammability and fire susceptibility of the surface, revealing that one of the most effective methods of obtaining fireproof TMs not impacting their main exploitation properties is the consistent use of heat-resistant and (or) flame retarded fibers or their combinations. The results of experimental studies on the main fire hazard indicators and the characteristics of the exploitation properties of domestic mass-produced TM made of a fiber mix for shipbuilding are presented.

Keywords: textile materials (TM), low fire hazard, surface spread flame, the smoke production, flammability, the emission of gas toxic products of thermal decomposition, TM compliant with the requirements regulating their fireproof application in ships.
