Most synthetic fibers, such as nylon, acrylic or polyester, are flame retardant. However, once it is ignited, the fabric will melt. This hot, viscous, molten substance can cause local burns and cause severe burns. When mixing natural and synthetic fibers, the risk may increase because the high burn rate and melting of the fabric usually cause severe burns. In some cases, the hazards may be greater than the hazards of the two fabrics.
Flame retardants applied through chemical treatment can reduce the burning speed of curtains, curtains and other items in the home. It is not recommended to apply such flame-retardant treatment to clothing after manufacture.
The design of the clothes may also affect the flammability of the clothes. Full, long and loose clothing is easy to catch fire and burns faster because more material is exposed to the atmosphere than tight clothing.
The flame-retardant materials used in clothing require special washing to maintain the flame-retardant effect. Flame-retardant materials can only be cleaned with standard detergents. Clothing labels usually provide sufficient information about the care of the clothing.
The clothing recommended to minimize flammability is sturdy jeans, tight-fitting jerseys, tops without frills, jersey pajamas without ruffle pajamas, tight-fitting or short-sleeved clothing, made of flame-retardant fabrics Clothing, sweaters, shirts and formal wear will not be loose, runny or too big. It is recommended to use clothing made of flame-retardant fabrics, especially for the elderly.
As far as flammability is concerned, silk may be the worst, with a high burning rate, while dyes and other additives can increase color, thereby increasing color.
The burning rate of cotton and flax is also very high, but this can be alleviated by using flame-retardant chemical additives.
The flammability of acetate and triacetate is lower than that of cotton. However, they can be made into flame retardants by chemical treatment.
Nylon, polyester, and acrylic resins tend to ignite slowly, but once ignited, severe melting and dripping occur.
Wool is relatively flame-retardant. If it is ignited, it usually burns at a low speed and may self-extinguish.
Glass fiber and modified acrylic are almost flame-retardant. These synthetic fibers are designed and manufactured to have flame retardant properties
