- Phosphorylamide, a water-soluble phosphorus-nitrogen compound, was cured on cotton cloth to impart washfast fire resistance. Some loss in strength, particularly tear strength. resulted, part of which could be alleviated by use of a softener. Apparently a consid erable part of the nitrogen is present as imido (—NH—) nitrogen.
