The Structural Model of Nanocomposites Poly(Vinyl Chloride)/ Organoclay Flame-Resistance

WithI. V. Dolbin, G. V. Kozlov, G. E. Zaikov, A. K. Mikitaev

It has been shown within the framework of strange (anomalous) diffusion conception that instantaneous jumps (“Levy’s flights”) of combustion front from one region of polymeric material into another increase sharply this material flammability. Distance between nanofiller particles decreasing reduces such jumps intensity, increasing thereby material flame-resistance. The fractal time of combustion enhancement results in “Levy’s flights” intensification and vice versa.
