How Do Flame Retardant Fabrics Work

- Jul 09, 2020-

Flame-retardant fabric refers to the cloth that can be extinguished automatically when leaving an open flame. Flame retardant fabrics can be divided into post-finished flame retardant fabrics and essential flame retardant fabrics (permanent flame retardant fabrics). The post-finishing flame retardant fabric is also called post-processing flame retardant fabric. It is produced by coating and auxiliary treatment during dyeing and finishing. The flame retardant effect will gradually weaken after washing. It is generally used to produce things that are not washed frequently.

The reason why the flame retardant fabric achieves the "flame retardant" effect

1. One of the reasons why these fabrics can achieve the "flame retardant" effect is the fiber contained in the fabric. This fiber is a new high-tech fiber material with flame retardant and anti-melt performance. For example, cotton flame-retardant fabrics, which are flame-retardant fabrics made by flame-retardant processing on the basis of cotton dyed fabrics, there are cotton flame-retardant plain cloth, cotton flame-retardant yarn card, all Cotton flame retardant Zhigong and cotton flame retardant canvas etc. This fiber uses the latest sol-gel technology, which makes the inorganic polymer flame retardant exist in the nano-state or interpenetrating network state in the organic macromolecule of viscose fiber, which not only guarantees the excellent physical properties of the fiber, but also Realized the characteristics of low smoke, non-toxic, non-odor, non-melting dripping.

2. The second reason why the flame retardant fabric can achieve the "flame retardant" effect is that when the fabric is produced, the flame retardant is used when the fabric is finished. The use of flame retardants is to make cotton, wool fibers and other fibers have flame retardant properties after flame retardant finishing, and the research on flame retardancy of fibers such as flame retardant polyester and flame retardant aramid fiber, that is, synthetic fiber resistance Research on combustion modification. Aramid flame retardant fiber belongs to aromatic polyamides, which is polyisophthaloyl metaphenylene diamine fiber. Aramid flame retardant fiber products have a soft feel, good bulkiness, drape, moisture absorption and breathability and high strength, abrasion resistance, drape, good cloth finish, color fastness, and carbonization in case of fire It has excellent characteristics such as melting drops to meet the quality requirements of high-end flame retardant clothing and decorative fabrics.
