The patent describes a process for flameproofing materials, more particularly cotton textile fabrics, comprising impregnating the material with a phosphorus compound, such as triallyl phosphate, and a comonomer, such as N-methylol acrylamide, and thereafter exposing the material to ionizing radiation at a dose level sufficient to cause production of a solid copolymer of the phosphorus compound and the comonomer in situ in the material. The flameproofed materials prepared by the process, which are durable against at least fifteen launderings, are disclosed. Modified author abstract
