Flame Retardance of Protein Fibers

  • L. Benisek

Abstract

Proteins are a class of naturally occurring compounds of high molecular weight. They are extremely widespread in nature, being one of the essential constituents of the tissues of plants and animals. In general, proteins fall into two groups—fibrous and globular. In the fiber field proteins such as wool, silk, mohair, etc., are of great value, while those found in milk or in groundnuts are capable of being transformed into fibers.
