Abstract

Fabrics are, quite literally, deeply woven into human history. Fabric can be used as clothing, housing materials, storage, and an almost infinite number of other uses. Since fabrics are such an important aspect of life, it is significant, whenever possible, to manufacture fabrics that are safe. While there are some fabrics that can burn and others that will not, all fabrics have the capacity to be improved. Flame-retardant agents can be added to fabrics to improve the longevity of fabrics in high temperature environments as well as make them nonflammable in atmospheric conditions.The purpose of this MQP was to investigate several parameters of various fabrics to determine if their nonflammable properties could be improved upon after flame-retardants were applied.
