Fire Retardant, Flammability, Textiles -

Fire retardant fabrics, also commonly known as flame retardant fabrics, are textiles resistant to fire, meaning they avoid or slow down any propagation of flames and thus ensure safer environments. A FR (fire retardant) rating for textiles measures the flammability of a fabric when exposed to a specific source of flame.  Certification for FR assures that the fabric passes certain criteria tests allowing them to be used in a variety of environments. Fabrics can be flame retardant through treatments or coatings.  FR fabrics use fibers that are inherently flame retardant without the need for treatment saturate on the surface.  Inherently...
