The study aims to develop a novel composite, with a combined contribution of reduced graphene oxide, poly(dimethyl-siloxane), and sodium bentonite (organoclay), for flame protection. Thermo-gravimetric analysis revealed an outstanding thermal stability of the composite as compared to its constituents. The superior composite is demonstrated to efficiently protect a polymer layer that burns instantly upon exposure to flame. The char residue of the composite indicated the formation of a spherical structure that acted as barrier layer to the underlying material to avoid any structural damage caused due to the exposure of the flame.
