The effect of sodium borate decahydrate as a nondurable treatment on the flammability of 100% cotton fabric (woven plain 150 g m−2) has been investigated in this paper. The laundered bone-dried massed samples were impregnated with suitable concentrations of sodium borate decahydrate. Each bunches of fabrics were dipped into individual aqueous solutions of the salt, followed by means of squeeze rolls and drying at 110°C. By using a ‘vertical flame spread test’ the optimum add-on values to impart flame-retardancy onto cotton fabric was determined to be as 4.24 g salt per 100 g fabric. The objective of this study is thermogravimetry (TG) investigation of pure cotton, treated one with the salt at its optimum efficiency. So that outcomes could be compared and commented, finally the results obtained are in favor of ‘Chemical action theory’, ‘Condensed phase retardation’, ‘Dust or wall effect theory’ and also ‘Gas dilution theory’.
