TGA and DTG curves of pure PVC, ZHS/PVC, GO/PVC, and ZHS/GO/PVC under air condition with raising rate of temperature of 10 °C/min. ZHS/GO/PVC nanocomposite presents a little degradation behavior compared to the neat PVC, which is attributed to the combination of the cross-linking effect of ZHS nanoparticles and good mass barrier effects of GO. The temperature at the maximum rate of weight loss at the second stage of decomposition (Td,max2) of ZHS/PVC, GO/PVC, and ZHS/GO/PVC were obviously higher than that of PVC. These results revealed that the stability of the residue was enhanced
