Coleman, E.H. and Elkins, G.H., 1958. THE BURNING OF FABRICS IN OXYGEN ENRICHED ATMOSPHERES PART I. COMPARISON OF FABRICS PART II. COMPARISON OF FLAME RETARDANT TREATMENTS. Fire Research Notes 360
The effect of oxygen enrichment of the atmosphere on flammability has been examined for a number of fabrics, and also some flame retardant treatments have been compared. Wool fabrics, which did not burn in air, burned readily in atmospheres enriched only slightly with oxygen. With flame retardant treatments there was a weight of deposit above which there was little or no increase of protection, and also there was a level of oxygen concentration above which all treated fabrics burned.
