What is a flame retardant fabric?
The flame retardant fabric is processed by the internationally renowned "PROBAN" production process. The flame retardant used is a durable finishing flame retardant agent for cotton fibers and their blended fabrics. The main feature is that after the use of the flame retardant agent and its post finishing process, a permanent effect is formed inside the fabric, so that it has durable flame retardant properties and can be washed more than 50 times.
The flame-retardant fabric not only effectively stopping spread the flame but also maintains the original properties of the fabric. The flame-retardant protective clothing made of the flame-retardant fabric has excellent washing resistance, non-toxic, tasteless, non-irritating, safe and reliable to the human body, breathable and moisture-permeable, soft to the touch, and comfortable to wear. Its performance can reach EN11612 (formerly EN531), EN11611 (formerly EN470-1), EN533, 16CFR, NFPA2112, ASTM and other standards by MTL, TUV, SGS and other authoritative inspection organizations.
