Flame retardant fabrics inherent in non-woven fabrics and treatment
Apr 12, 2017

Flame retardant can be achieved in two ways: additive (mechanically blended flame retardant chemistry with polymer in front of extrusion) and locally (coated fibers or fabrics with flame-retardant chemistry). Additive types are useful for thermoplastic plastics and topical treatments can be used with thermoplastic, thermosetting plastics and natural fibres.

The inherent flame retardant fibers are materials that have flame retardant and constructed to their chemical structures. The actual structure of the fibers itself is not flammable. For inherent flame-retardant fibers, the protection is placed in the fibers itself and cannot be worn out or washed out. Other main categories are flame retardant treatment (FRT) fabrics. These materials are flame retardant by the application of flame retardant chemicals. Chemical additives on fibres or treatments for fabrics are used to provide a certain degree of flame retardant. When a fire occurs, chemical-related fabrics rely on chemical reactions to extinguish the flames. This reaction is triggered by the amount of heat and time of the fire exposed to the fabric of the fire.

Inherent Flame retardant Fabrics (FR) Characteristics, on the other hand, cannot be eliminated or worn out. This means that the flame retardant performance of the inner fiber garment cannot compromise. This is crucial for the wearer to know that flame retardant protection is always existed.

The other is a flame retardant, which is a chemical that interferes with one or several steps in the combustion process. This is done in four different modes of action:

The reaction is carried out in the gas phase.

Reactions in condensed phase.

Cooling effect.

The effect of thinning.

It is very difficult to determine whether the protective device is damaged and FRT fabrics. There are some ways to test it. Unfortunately, all of these test methods are destructive-indeed there is no way to test clothes to determine their current flame retardant or arc-light protection value levels without damaging the garment's flame or arc flash test.
