This dissertation outlines the essential of the boric acid affecting the properties of the cotton felt. The objectives of this project to improve the cotton felt to become thermal insulation and fire retardant material This project consists of 3 parts. First part is the introduction of insulation and the various types of insulations materials. It describes the properties of insulations material and the purposes of insulations materials. The second part is a description of what are felt and the manufacturing process of felt. Boric acid is the additive that used to enhance the felt to become insulation material that prevent the heat can be transferring through conduction, convection and radiation. The last part is the discussion and conclusion. The three experiments which are flammability test, moisture test and thermal flow test are being carried out. The results are used to discuss the temperature reduction, fire retardant and moisture content. The conclusion being made based on the results that to achieve the objectives of this dissertation. After carried out this project, we are able to determine the properties of the felt by adding additives and method of using that affect the properties of cotton felt.
