Abstract
The flame resistance properties of oyster shells powder extracted from the
Caspian sea in Iran composites were studied. (0%, 2.5%, 5%, 10%, 15% and
20%) (Wt. /wt) of added oyster shells powder with the particular size (≤ 250
μm) where composite with low density polyethylene and several factor were
studied like average of average time of burning(ATB), rate of burning(RB),
average extent of burning(AEB) and percentage of the time of burning(PTB).
The obtained results showed that the average time of burning initiates
strongly impacts with (5%), increasing weight preparation to(147Sec). And
then begins to decline their behavior when increasing proportions weighted.
While, the composite shows exception behavior at (20 %).
