The applications of polymeric materials in many industries show the great importance of these materials. Due to their molecular structure and chemical composition, polymeric materials are highly flammable. This study is mainly focused on the effect of nanoparticles on polymeric materials in terms of flame retardancy. In this research, the impact of various percentages of nanoparticles on the flame retardancy of the polymeric materials was investigated and the best combinatorial percentage was determined using the experimental analysis. For the purpose of the experiments, the casting of the solvents were considered and thermal tests were performed to evaluate the impact of nanoparticles on flame retardancy.
