ABSTRACT
Most often used fire retardants are not usually eco-friendly. The fire retardant need to
protect the material against the ignition and fire. Halogen retardants based on bromine and chlorine are mostly used in electronic industry. But their negative health impact turns companies on use Halogen Free and Brominated Flame Retardants. The results with alternative retardants are not commonly known. The focus of this paper is
concerned on fire-retardance potential of various fertilizers based on nitrogen,
phosphate and potassium. Therefore many measurements had been made in National Fire Laboratories. The heat resistance was very high in almost each sample. This is the basic condition for their use in fire-fighting. Second condition is their ecology and health impact. This condition must be studied and tested in future tests.

Keywords: Fire retardant, fertilizers, ignition temperature, heat resistance
