|Abstract:||Combustion properties and pyrolysis characteristics of materials commonly used to make personal computer monitors were investigated using pyrolysis combustion flow calorimeter (PCFC) and simultaneous TG/DTA analyzer. Six typical brands of PC monitors were selected for the study. The study has shown that three specimens have similar combustion properties and pyrolysis characteristics with polycaprolactam (PA 6), and the other three specimens are closed to high impact polystyrene (HIPS), polyethylene (PE), polycarbonate (PC) respectively. This study serves as a precursor for Part II: Experiment study on fire characteristics of PC monitors under different ventilation conditions of this two-part study.|
