Choosing and optimizing a flame-retardant package for a polymer system can be an involved, time-consuming process. Planning experiments using a statistical design approach can provide an efficient framework for systematically gaining information concerning the burn behavior of a polymer system. This paper describes the use of statistically designed experiments to develop a representation of the burn response for a polymer system containing several flame-retardant additives using UL94V procedures.
