The fabric itself is easy to catch fire, so in order to increase the safety, it is necessary to incorporate a flame retardant on the fabric after processing and molding, so that once a fire occurs, it will not immediately intensify and can effectively isolate it.

 

Disposable flame retardant
Immerse the fabric in an aqueous solution of a special flame retardant and wait for a certain period of time before taking it out for drying. This method is really simple, but as long as the fabric is washed with water, it will immediately lose its flame retardancy. It should be used on fabrics that do not often wash.

 

Durable flame retardant
Use chemical methods to polymerize or polycondensate inside or on the surface of the fabric to form a polymer that is insoluble in water and other solvents, or use latex, resin and other insoluble substances to adhere to the fiber. After many times of washing, the treated fabric will not make the flame retardant invalid.
Generally speaking, the price of fabrics with longer flame retardancy will be relatively expensive. So when users choose the fabric type, they can buy it in combination with some specific conditions.
