Stabilization of Red Amorphous Phosphorous By Ordered Polymeric Structures for the Manufacture of Non-Imissive Fire Retardant Plastics: 5,543,447


A novel plastic composition and method for making the same comprising a host polymer having substantially uniformly distributed therethrough a non-miscible liquid crystal polymer and red amorphous phosphorus. The liquid crystal polymer is present in a concentration sufficient to encapsulate said red amorphous phosphorus such that a substantial portion of the red amorphous phosphorus does not contact the host polymer.
