Flame retardants are substances utilized for extinguishing fire or preventing the outbreak of fire. They comprise various classes of chemicals, such as chlorine, bromine, antimony oxides, aluminum hydroxide, molybdenum compounds, zinc, magnesium oxides, organic phosphate esters, phosphates, halogenated phosphorus, and inorganic phosphorus-containing salts. They also consist of graphene, graphite, nitrogen compounds, silicon-based materials, and tin. They are added to materials or applied on surfaces to restrict combustion. They are used as coatings on furniture to enhance their safety and make them fireproof. They also assist in coating carpets, curtains, mattresses, and fabrics to protect them from sparks and flames of a fire. Flame retardants find extensive applications in manufacturing various electronics and electrical devices, such as laptops, smartphones, computers, and televisions (TVs), and cables and wires of numerous household appliances. They are applied on various parts of automobiles, trains, and airplanes, such as seats, seat covers, overhead compartments, and bumpers, to make them resistant to fire and maintain the safety of passengers. They reduce the amount of heat released from fire and smoke produced due to combustion. As flame retardants enhance the safety of combustible materials and products, they find extensive applications in residential, commercial, and construction sectors across the globe.
