Coleman, E.H., 1959. THE FLAMMABILITY OF FABRICS IN COMPRESSED AIR. Fire Research Notes 382
Experiments to determine the effect of increased air pressure on the flammability of fabrics have shown that increased air pressure decreased the protection afforded by a flame retardent treatment, but it appears that the generally recommended 10 per cent addition of boric acid/borax mixture affords a useful protection. The effect of compression is therefore similar to that of enrichment with oxygen, although less in degree.
