Abstract
The scope and objective of this work was to evaluate and determine fire properties for a material that will be used for radiation shielding at the research centre. Traditionally two materials, borated paraffin and borated polyethylene, are used for radiation shielding at neutron-based research laboratories. Since base paraffin and base polyethylene are known as combustible materials with a high energy content it is of great interest to determine the actual fire properties of the borated versions.
