Therefore, the size effect of the EGP on RPUF combustibility, thermal stability, physical and mechanical properties, diathermancy and hydrophobic property was characterized by limiting oxygen index (LOI), vertical burning level, cone calorimeter, thermogravimetry/ differential thermogravimetry (TG/DTG), density, compression strength, thermal conductivity, and contact angle tests.
