In this study, knitted fabrics are chosen to investigate the effect of their finishing properties on flame resistance. Finishing processes (bleaching, dyeing, and some chemical additives used for bleaching and dyeing) that affect fabric flammability are defined and an experimental program is followed. The level of flammability of the treated fabrics is measured in accordance with the BS 5438 vertical flammability test method because its results are very similar to real fabric burning behavior. Finally, experimental results are evaluated according to a statistical analysis with the SPSS program, and how and at which level chemical parameters affect knitted fabric burning behavior is defined.
