Abstract:

The objective of this project was to establish feasible methods of improving the melt resistance and flame retarding properties of materials commonly used as textile fibers. Further investigations were carried out on the grafting of polyacrylonitrile PAN and its copolymers onto surfaces of nylon fabric further an extensive series of experimentation was undertaken on the grafting and application of flame retardent coatings.
