KAGS in College Station, TX did a short news story about the intumescent nanocoating developed in the laboratory of Professor Jaime Grunlan at Texas A&M University (http://nanocomposites.tamu.edu). Dr. Grunlan's group deposited a sub-micron, water-based coating on each individual fiber of cotton fabric using layer-by-layer assembly. The coated fabric will not ignite due to the intumescent effect imparted by the nitrogen-rich and phosphorous-rich ingredients. This is a nice alternative to more toxic brominated flame retardants.
