The article presents the effect of Mg(OH)2, Al(OH)3, Roflam F5 and Roflam B7 on the flammability properties of the hardened epoxy resin Epidian 5.After analyzing the heat release rate in the cone calorimeter and thermogravimetric analysis, it was found that the introduced additives are effective antirenes of the tested epoxy materials. The lowest value of the maximum heat release rate was recorded for the sample consisting of Epidian 5 and 10 wt.% of Roflam F5 and 5 wt. Al(OH)3.
