This project aimed to improve flame retardancy by applying flame retardant halogen-free Aluminum Trihydrate (ATH) and nanoclay to cotton tent fabric with ultraviolet (UV) curing method, which has gained importance in recent years. All designs are designed to provide flame retardancy in order to benefit from the synergy effects of the use of ATH and nanoclay together, and to obtain acceptable values from the limit oxygen index (LOI) test, which is used to measure ignition levels. 3 different coatings are designed; the designs were intended to be applied on canvas; It is aimed to apply the recipe containing UV cured polyurethane acrylate oligomer resin, ATH, nanoclay and two different photoinitiators (Omnirad 819 and Omnirad 500).
