The Fire and Polymers symposium is held every 4 years and brings together chemists, material scientists, and fire safety scientists to discuss the newest advances and unsolved problems in this multidisciplinary field of research.  This symposium covers applied chemistry, chemical-focused materials science, chemical structure-property relationships, and fire safety science/engineering research and development topics.  A wide range of academic, government, and industrial scientists and engineers attend this symposium every four years.  Specific areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Layer-By-Layer Flame Retardant Coatings
  • Flame Retardant Chemistry
  • Polymer Nanotechnology for Flame Retardant Applications
  • Fire and Thermal Polymer Degradation Modeling
  • Processing and Preparation of Flame Retardant Materials
  • Combustion Structure and Property Relationships
  • Fire Testing and Methodology
  • Regulations, Codes & Standards of Fire and Environmental Safety
