However, radiation-curable coatings have other desirable properties such as speed of cure; extremely hard, chemically resistant finishes; ambient curing; small application equipment footprint; high productivity; and nonflammability.
Trichlorotrifluoroethane, with its low boiling point and nonflammability is a known extraction solvent; however, it is a chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and its ability to destroy ozone poses significant environmental hazards [6, 9].
group, told the same news conference that the firm needs to clear stricter regulations on nonflammability for airplane seats compared with those for cars and will also have to lighten seats.
With that in mind, we have developed a novel halogen-free, phosphorus-free material (named UP-160HPF) for PCB applications that can fulfill the environmental requirements, exhibit good characteristics and nonflammability without a high cost penalty.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are synthetic chemicals that were manufactured in the United States between about 1930 and 1977 for use in various industrial and commercial applications because of their nonflammability, chemical stability, high boiling point, and electrical insulation properties (ATSDR, 2000).
Krytox oils and greases are lubricants that combine high-temperature performance, nonflammability and chemical inertness under a wide range of conditions.
2]) was extensively used as the refrigerant for vapor-compression refrigeration systems, especially in marine systems, due to its nonflammability and acceptable toxicity.
In some applications, nonvolatile solvents are acceptable, leading to significant "green" advantages including nonflammability, no solvent emissions to the atmosphere, no contribution to smog formation, and lack of human exposure through solvent inhalation.
Ionic liquids, the salts having very low melting temperature, show very high ionic conductivity, nonvolatility, and nonflammability and thus offer many applications for electrochemistry, not the least of which is design for greater safety.
The wide array of industrial applications of PCBs reflects their unique chemical properties, including thermal and chemical stability, low reactivity, high dielectric constant, nonflammability, and miscibility with organic compounds (Kennish, 1992, 2000).
33) These coatings were all coated with a fluorinated ELT[TM] topcoat that may have contributed in some measure to the coatings nonflammability (Figure 9A-D).
Krytox oils and greases are said to be the products of choice for applications where complete nonflammability, oxygen compatibility and resistance to aggressive chemicals are requirements, according to the literature.
