AbstractCellulosic fiber polymer composites have received very much attention for various industrial applications because of their lower density, cost effectiveness and renewable cellulosic fiber composition. However the uses of cellulosic fibers in these composites are limited in many applications that require fire resistance due to the flammability and the low thermal resistance of the cellulosic fibers. This paper reports on an innovative and sustainable approach to retard the burning of cellulosic fibers for composite production in which a minimum amount of non-toxic and low cost inorganic chemicals have been used.
