The necessity of flame retardant fabric application

In the early stages of civilization, mankind had recognized the special dangers caused by the burning of textiles. Since then, salt (such as alum) has been used to reduce the flammability of textiles, which has made textiles flame-retardant. Even today, most textiles have flammable properties, and in our surrounding environment, existing fiber polymers have a large specific surface area, so as to maximize contact with atmospheric oxygen. Therefore, the above The danger is still with us. So flame retardant fabric came into being.

In particular, the currently widely used cotton flame-retardant fabrics are the main flame-retardant fabric products. The production of cotton flame-retardant fabrics is a flame-retardant finishing of fabrics. Cotton fire-retardant fabrics are usually made chemically by fabric post-treatment as a textile finishing process. This sorting process can result in textiles having flame retardant properties with different durability for different washing processes depending on the chemical properties.

Flame-retardant fabrics are also classified according to their durability. 1. Non-durable flame-retardant finishes: Temporary flame-retardant finishes. After washing, they will have no flame-retardant properties. The process is simple and the price is relatively low. Low, suitable for fabrics that will not wash. 2. Semi-durable flame-retardant finishes: The flame-retardant finished fabrics can withstand 1-10 mild cleanings. But not high temperature soaping. 3. Durability Flame Retardant Finish: It is also the most commonly used finishing method for flame-retardant fabrics. The general washing times can reach more than 30 times. Shinke Textile's cotton flame-retardant fabrics are all durable flame-retardant finishing agents, and the washing times can reach more than 50 times. CP flame-retardant finishing and Shinco brand FRECOTEX are all using environmentally-friendly flame retardants to produce the full Cotton flame-retardant fabrics can meet the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 environmental standard.
