TL;DR: For the correct and intelligent use of plastics, it is just as important to identify each one as it is in metals to be able to tell aluminium alloys from magnesium alloys or mild steel from high tensile steel, or in timbers to discriminate between birch, spruce and mahogany.

TL;DR: In the application of a fire-retardant utilizing the metallic oxides, the nylon is seriously damaged as discussed by the authors, and accordingly, for a fabric of this type or any fabric utilizing nylon, a different kind of fire-resilient treatment will be needed.
Abstract: to nylon tentage has been reviewed recently [7, 9] . It was stated [7] : &dquo;In lightweight tentage a problem has arisen which has not been successfully solved and which extends as well to clothing. In the application of a fire-retardant utilizing the metallic oxides, the nylon is seriously damaged. Accordingly, for a fabric of this type or any fabric utilizing nylon, a different kind of fire-retardant treatment will be needed.&dquo;
