The non-in?ammable properties of‘ the ad

down, when exposed to ?ame, whereby smoke or 30
gases consisting largely of fully oxidized (and
hence not further combustible) "materials are
produced.’ In the case of tricresyl phosphate
(Lindol), this oxidized material is rich in P205
organic compounds to oils of moderate viscosity.
