    It is difficult to measure the rate-of-burn of thermoplastic fabrics because they tend to melt-drip or be self-extinguishing. But by supporting the fabric by stitching it with an inert, glass fiber thread, accurate measurements can be obtained. Results for untreated nylon and polyester fabrics...

    There are many factors to be considered in applying flame retardants to textiles. In addition to the base fabric there are such variables (often incompatible) as dyes, resins, backings and other finishing agents. Flammability can be affected by all of them. The systems approach described by the...
