Two groups of additives were used in this investigation, to measure the effect of these additives on retard combustion of unsaturated polyester and epoxy resins. The first group contains four complexes, from type organo-halogen antimonate compounds, and the second group, which prepared from blend 50% in weight percentage of each complex with 50% in weight percentage of chlorinated rubber. Three sheets from each resins were prepared with weight percentage ( 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 & 0.8 % ) of additives . Three standard test methods used to measure the flame retardation, which are: (ASTM:D -2863), (ASTM:D-635) and (ASTM:D-3014) .
Results were obtained from these tests indicated that, additive VI has high efficiency as flame retardant, for both resins and additive III show low effect on flammability in both resins .
