A simple and inexpensive technique is described for the study of flammability of polymers, wherein the samples can be weighed continuously during their combustion in controlled atmosphere. The mass versus time curves for burning and quenching process in polystyrene samples are discussed. The experimental data indicates the efficiency of Monoammonium phosphate and ammonium halides in quenching of polystyrene.
