Flame retardant fabric is widely used in the industries such as clothing, furniture, and upholstery. These fabrics are made from special fibres that have been treated with fire retardants. The fabric can be woven or knitted, but the most common one is woven cotton canvas. It is a very versatile material that can be used for many different applications. The flame retardant nature of this fabric makes it very useful in many different industries and applications.
There are many uses for flame resistant fabrics including:
Clothing: Flame resistant clothing is usually worn by workers who work around open flames or fire hazards. It can also be used in military uniforms and other similar situations where there is a need for protection from fire hazards. This type of clothing will keep you safe from burns caused by contact with flames or sparks from welding equipment, torches, etc.
Furniture: Furniture is another important application for flame resistant fabrics because it protects us from being burned by hot surfaces such as chairs or couches that have been treated with fire retardants so they won’t burn easily when exposed to an open flame or spark source like an electrical short circuit or other type of electrical malfunctioning device.
Firefighting: Flame retardant fabrics are used in firefighting garments to protect firefighters from heat and flames during a fire. These garments are made up of high-temperature resistant materials such as Kevlar, Nomex or other synthetic fibres. Flame retardant fabric helps in preventing burn injuries to firefighters during a fire accident by limiting the amount of heat that reaches the skin.
Military and Aerospace: Flame retardants play an important role in military operations as they protect soldiers from burns caused by explosives or fire arms. Aircrafts also use flame retardant coatings on their fuselages to protect them from any damage caused by fires due to accidental ignition inside the cabin or engines compartment during flight.
Transportation Industry: In transportation industry, flame retardant coatings are applied on vehicles such as ships, trains and aircrafts for protection against fires caused by accidental ignition inside the cabin or engine compartment during flight/transit time.
Automobile Industry: Flame retardant fabrics are also used in automobiles for seat coverings and interior parts like head rests etc. This helps in reducing the risk of accidents due to fire during an accident.
