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...

Heat Shields, Industrial Heat Shields, Product Information -

A heat shield can be designed and utilized to shield a component from absorbing excessive heat from an external source, or can be designed to contain heat to maintain consistent gas/exhaust temperature.  This is accomplished by either, dissipating, reflecting or absorbing the heat.  At Thermal Control Products, we pride ourselves in designing many types of heat shields for applications such as exhaust thermal management, sensitive component protection, maintaining consistent gas temperatures, and protection of fuel, brake, transmission and electrical systems. The three physical properties that determine how well a heat shield works are: Reflectivity Emissivity Conductivity A radiant type heat-...
