Summary This chapter gives an overview of methods to enhance the flame retardant properties of fibre reinforced polymer composite materials. The methods used are extraordinary diverse, and vary in complexity from simple additive compounds blended into the polymer matrix or heat-resistant coatings, through to sophisticated methods that involve chemical modification of the matrix or heat-induced intumescence of the composite surface. Also outlined are methods to improve the thermal stability and fire resistance of organic fibres used in composites.
