The fire toxicity of a range of commercial fire retarded materials as, a function of ventilation condition, or equivalence ratio, has been investigated, showing how different forms of fire retardant action have different effects on the toxicity. The study includes halogenated, mineral filler, nanocomposite and phosphorus based fire retardants in a number of different polymer matrices.
