Fireproof polymer materials based on olefin copolymers. Regulation of physical-mechanical characteristics




modifier, ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer, fire-retardant fillers, physical and mechanical characteristics, oxygen index


Determination of the influence of the modifier on the physical and mechanical properties of fireproof materials based on olefinic polymers for the cable industry. Investigation of the physical and mechanical properties of polymer compositions was carried out on a tensile machine. The effect of the amount of a modifier on the increase in the physical and mechanical properties of EVA polymer compositions was studied. These characteristics are retained by more than 80 % after aging for all test samples. The effectiveness of directed regulation of the physical and mechanical properties of fireproof EVA compositions by a structural modifier is shown. The results of the studies make it possible to quickly adjust the formulation of the compositions
