Polylactic acid/bamboo fibers (PLA/BF) composites, which are extremely flammable, must be carried out fire-retardant processing. However, traditional organic flame retardants release certain amount of pollutant to the environment, and inorganic flame retardants require more addition, which influenced the mechanical properties of composites. Therefore, nano inorganic flame retardants, which have some characteristics of small size, uniform shape and high specific surface area, can bring good flame-retardant effect with relatively few addition.
