Spectroscopic studies of weathered flame retardant cotton fabrics were conducted. The weathering conditions included combined and independent exposure to xenon arc light and low concentrations of SO2, NO2, and O3 gases. Multiple internal reflectance infrared analysis of weathered Pyrovatex 3805-treated fabric showed that the finish removed after 150 hr of weathering exposure had the same structure as the original finish. Interferometer spectra of Pyrovatex 3805 and THPOH-NH3 finishes on the fabric indicated no significant changes in the structure for both finishes after exposure to the various weathering conditions.
