The effect of magnesium bromide hexahydrate [MgBr2·6H2O] as a nondurable finish on the flammability of 100% cotton fabric, (woven construction, massing 150 g m−2) has been investigated. The laundered bone-dried, massed fabrics were impregnated with various concentrations of the aqueous above-mentioned salt solutions by means of squeeze rolls and drying in an oven at 110°C for 30 min. The specimens were then cooled in a desiccator, re-massed with an analytical balance and kept under standard… Expand
Comparative Performance of Three Magnesium Compounds on Thermal Degradation Behavior of Red Gum Wood
The results showed common fire retardation actions of the three compounds by releasing incombustible gas and/or water vapor to dilute combustible gas in the flaming zone, and by converting to MgO, which had a satisfactory protective wall effect on the wood. Expand
Flame-retardancy and photocatalytic properties of cellulosic fabric coated by nano-sized titanium dioxide
We have investigated the effect of titanium dioxide as a durable finish on the flammability and photocatalytic self-cleaning of cellulosic fabric. Nano-sized titanium dioxide particles wereExpand
Dehydration of Magnesium Bromide Hexahydrate Studied by in situ X-ray Powder Diffraction
Laboratory X-ray powder diffraction data were used to investigate the dehydration process of magnesium bromide hexahydrate in the temperature range 300 K ≤ T ≤ 420 K. By heating of the as synthesizedExpand

Thermogravimetric Studies of Deposited Potash Impregnated for Flame-Retardancy into a Cotton Fabric
The effect of potash as a nondurable finish on the flammability of 100% cotton fabric (plain 180 g/m2) was investigated. The bone-dried weighed fabrics were dipped into suitable concentrations ofExpand
Combustion pathway of cotton fabrics treated by ammonium sulfate as a flame-retardant studied by TG
The effect of ammonium sulfate (NH4)2SO4 on the flammability of 100% cotton woven fabric (plain 144 g m−2, the number of yarns 21 per 10 mm) has been of interest in this study. The launderedExpand
Detection of copper(II) sulfate’s uniformity and its thermal behavior in flammability of cotton fabric
Blue vitriol (copper(II) sulfate pentahydrate), CuSO4·5H2O has been chosen and investigated for its effectiveness as a flame-retardant, when impregnated into cotton fabric (cotton with a plainExpand
Thermogravimetry of deposited caustic soda used as a flame-retardant for cotton fabric
We have investigated the effect of caustic soda as a nondurable finish on the flammability of 100% cotton fabric (plain 180 g m−2). On the contrary to the mercerization, during the impregnationExpand
Influence of flame retardants on the mechanism of pyrolysis of cotton (cellulose) fabrics in air
A revised model for the influence of flame retardant treatments on the pyrolysis behaviour, in air, of cotton (cellulose) fabrics is proposed. This is based on extensive studies of a set ofExpand
Burning of a Cotton Fabric Impregnated by Synthetic Zinc Carbonate Hydroxide as a Flame Retardant
Zinc carbonate hydroxide [ZnCO3·Zn(OH)2] synthesized by means of the multiple-bath method was deposited onto a cotton fabric, and its uniformity was ensured by means of squeeze rolls. ProlongedExpand
