Nanoscale aluminium trihydroxide (ATH) is examined to its suitability for carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRP) as a novel flame retardant. In particular the influence of particle size and concentration ofATHto the fire behaviour of epoxy polymer matrices is determined. The particle size is adjusted bymeans of different dispersing techniques.By SEM images and viscosity measurements the homogeneity of the producedATHdispersions for the liquid ones and of cured epoxy–ATH nanocomposites is determined. Based on these pre-results, selected ATH dispersions are used for the manufacturing of CFRP which are produced by the proved injection technology. The thermal stability of the ATH nanocomposite plates and the corresponding CFRP plates are analyzed by means of quantitative single difference thermoanalysis (QSDTA). The fire behaviour is characterised by using theOSUchamber test.Both tests indicate a reduced heat release rate by decreasing the ATH particle size, i.e. the thermal load decreases. A combined fire protection mechanism is discussed for the improved fire protection through ATH nanoparticles.
