Abstract

Complex multilayer coatings composed of α-zirconium phosphate (ZrP), polyethylenimine (PEI), and ammonium polyphosphate (APP) were constructed via layer-by-layer assembly method for flame retardant ramie fabric. Bicomponent PEI/ZrP layers served as insulating barrier coating, and bicomponent PEI/APP layers served as intumescent coating. The flame retardancy of the coated ramie fabric was strongly dependent on the nature of the coatings and the layer-by-layer assembly patterns. The coated ramie fabric with inside PEI/ZrP layers and outside PEI/APP layers possessed the most uniform and consistent coating surface morphology, as well as the highest content of N and P elements, resulting in an excellent improvement in flame retardancy of ramie fabrics. When this kind of coated ramie fabric was heated, the inner PEI/ZrP layer effectively prevent oxygen and heat from penetrating into the substrate, and the outer PEI/APP layer exposed to air with good expansion during combustion. The synergistic effect was formed during the combustion process and could impart ramie fabrics with high flame retardancy.
