A new netlike nano zinc borate ZnO·yB2O3·zH2O (y = 0.3–0.4, z = 1.0–1.4) with amorphous phase was prepared via coordination homogeneous precipitation method in this paper. XRD, FESEM and TG were used to characterize the products. The morphology of the samples was composed of fibers with diameter about 15 nm and length about hundreds of nanometers, some of which entangled each other to form dendritic or interconnected networks. The pilot study revealed that the product had better char formation effect than the commercial ZB2335 when it was introduced into polypropylene (PP) and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) as flame-retardant filler.
