What Is Aramid Flame Retardant Fabric

- Mar 12, 2020-

Aramid flame-retardant fabric is a special protective fabric with the fastest development and excellent comprehensive performance in the world. It has good physical and mechanical properties and is widely used in high-temperature filter materials, protective clothing, honeycomb structure materials, etc. it is indispensable for aerospace, aviation, national defense, electronics, communication, environmental protection, petroleum, chemical industry, marine development and other high-tech fields Important basic materials.


Aramid flame retardant fabric has excellent properties such as ultra-high strength, high modulus and high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, light weight, insulation, anti-aging and long life cycle. Aramid fabric is made from aramid yarns by spinning, weaving and dyeing. Because aramid fiber itself has the characteristics of flame retardant, excellent insulation, excellent chemical stability and long-lasting thermal stability, aramid flame-retardant fabric not only integrates the advantages of ordinary flame-retardant fabric, but also has extremely excellent arc resistance, chemical corrosion resistance, thermal protection, wear resistance and tear resistance. The protective clothing made of this kind of fabric will not burn, melt drop, shrink or smoke in case of fire, especially in case of high temperature of 900-1500 ℃, the surface of the fabric will be carbonized and thickened rapidly, forming a unique thermal insulation barrier, which can protect the wearer from danger successfully. At the same time, para aramid fiber (commonly known as aramid 1414) and antistatic fiber can be woven into the aramid flame-retardant fabric to better enhance its protective performance.


The properties of aramid flame-retardant fabrics are as follows:

1. Permanent heat and flame resistance, LOI greater than 28

2. Permanent antistatic

3. Permanent acid and alkali resistance and organic solvent erosion

4. High strength, wear resistance and tear resistance

5. There is no droplet or toxic gas in case of fire

6. When burning the cloth surface, the cloth surface thickens, enhances the tightness and does not break.


The aramid flame retardant fabric produced is made of 93% Aramid 1313, 5% aramid 1414 and 2% antistatic fiber. The aramid fabric has the advantages of heat resistance, high strength, high wear resistance, good softness, anti-static, chemical structure stability, combustion without droplet, no poison gas, etc. even the very light aramid fabric has good fire resistance and anti-static performance, which is one of the hot products not available in the high-end flame-retardant fabric. This fabric has a soft feel and good fluffy , drapability, moisture absorption and permeability, high strength and wear resistance, good cloth surface finish, color fastness, and non melting drop in case of fire carbonization, so as to meet the quality requirements of high and medium grade flame retardant clothing.Welcome to contact us for more product information(mori@protectiontextile.com).
