- ... An extensive trial of acetate drapery fabrics dyed with new "gas-fast" blues has shown that active agents in the atmosphere, in addition to the oxides of nitrogen, can cause fading in service. This fading is oxidative in nature. It has been reproduced by an accelerated laboratory test in which fabrics have been exposed to concentrations of ozone somewhat higher than those ordinarily found in the a ...

- ... This paper outlines why cellulose triacetate, which has been known for 90 years, has only recently become a fiber-forming material of considerable commercial interest. After giving a brief historical background, it describes the structure of triacetate as developed by heat treatment and the utilization of heat treatment for the improvement of fiber and fabric properties. It further presents data o ...
