Flame retardant fabrics

This section of the catalog presents to your attention high quality fire retardant fabrics for various purposes. Among them are cotton, aramid, blended and linen materials made using various impregnations and having different additional properties that determine their scope.

Cotton fire retardant fabrics

This category of fire retardant fabrics is characterized by a high degree of demand. The fabrics presented in it combine a sufficient degree of fire protection and high performance. Cotton fabrics are used in sewing workwear for personnel employed in industries such as metallurgy, oil production and refining, energy, construction and mechanical engineering. Work suits for welders are sewn from them. They are suitable for frequent industrial washing and do not lose their flame retardant properties over a long period.

Aramid flame retardant fabrics

In the production of fabrics of this category, high-strength threads are used from polymeric materials with non-combustible properties. The products made from them are not flammable and are able to withstand high temperatures. Moreover, their thermal and electrical conductivity remains at a fairly low level.

The use of various impregnations enhances the protective properties of polymer threads and, depending on the formulations used, provides additional protection against oils, oil or chemical solutions. Armide fabrics can also be water-repellent.

They are designed for tailoring the suits worn by steelworkers, race car drivers, test pilots, firefighters and other hazardous occupations with a risk of static electricity or fire. Some types of armide fabrics are used in the production of body armor, helmets and other military products.

Blended fire retardant fabrics

Blended fabrics are more durable than pure cotton fabrics. At the same time, a large percentage of natural raw materials contained in them ensures a fairly high level of air exchange. These products are distinguished by a variety of color solutions, which gives the customer ample opportunities for branding the workwear made from them.

The use of special impregnations makes it possible to use mixed fabrics with additional protective properties in the production of equipment for gas station employees or other personnel involved in various tasks in an explosive environment. Antistatic threads are often included in this category.

Flame retardant linen fabrics

The assortment of this category includes tarpaulin fabrics characterized by a high degree of resistance to fire. Dense tarpaulin or canvas with fire retardant impregnation are designed for sewing sleeves, aprons and mittens that prevent splashes of molten metal, sparks or flames from contacting the skin. They are also used in the production of fireproof curtains and covers for special equipment.

In terms of chemical composition and processing method, cotton and blended fabrics are very similar. During the production process, a special antipyrine solution is applied to the top layer of the fabric. This chemical reacts only when the temperature rises rapidly. The mechanism of action of OZ cotton and blended fabric is that antipyrine emits the corresponding gas, which does not allow special flares. clothes. The downside is that with long-term use of the robe, the active substances can be exhausted, and further wearing will be less safe. It is worth noting that cotton fabric is more fire resistant than any other. Therefore, a robe with cotton fabric is worn by those professions where the flame occurs extremely rarely (gas station refuellers). The blended fabric has a higher density (350 - 600 kg / m3), which means it is much safer.

Linen fabric is treated with melamine-foil resins, which makes it possible to resist fire (up to a temperature of 170 C). The peculiarity of this fabric is that at excessively high temperatures, the fabric catches fire and gradually charred, but if you move away from the immediate seat of fire, the burning stops for a moment. This uniform is designed for firefighters, oil workers.

Aramid fabric is considered the most reliable, durable and has a huge density (more than 1200 kg / cubic meter), in addition, the minimum temperature threshold that allows a suit to catch fire is 250 C. Despite all the advantages in density, aramid fabric is lightweight and practically not processed by chemical means. & nbsp;
