Recently, ıt has been emerged that have wide application environmentally friendly, sustainable with the development of technology and industrialization. Boron has an important place among these new materials in terms of meeting the mentioned properties. Boron is now widely used as nanocomposite structures. The flame retardant property of boron has been the reason why it is preferred in the production of non-flammable textile products. In this study, we aimed to improve the flame retardancy properties with the newly developed boron-based nanocomposite material in knitted fabric structures. The developed nanocomposite structure is covered with 100% cotton 30/1 compact combed, 160 g/m2, single jersey knit fabric using the coating technique. The flame retardant properties of the coated fabric have been tested according to TS EN ISO 6941:2006. The LOI value means the % oxygen required by a material to continue burning in air. High LOI value shows that the material has more difficult burning characteristics in standard atmosphere environments. In study, for a material to be qualified as flame retardant, the tripping thread at 300 mm should not break in less than 25 seconds, the tripping thread at 600 mm in should not break in less than 50 seconds. According to the results obtained, it has been determined that the boron-based nanocomposite we have developed has flame retardant properties.
