Natural Flame-Retardant Coating to Reduce Flammability

Researchers at A&M University in Texas are developing a flame-retardant coating using a non-toxic and renewable material available in nature. It can possibly reduce flammability of polyurethane foam widely used in making furniture. In collaboration with Stockholm’s KTH Royal Institute of Technology and team, the coating has already come into existence. One of the Stockholm researchers Dr. Jaime Grunlan says that, both cellulose and clay, found naturally act as mechanical
