Flame Retardant – an effective and versatile, long lasting flame retardant solution
‘FLAME RETARDANT’ is a colourless, odourless, non-toxic, non-corrosive liquid that you simply spray onto all types of material (natural or synthetic) or even untreated wood. After drying, it can’t be seen or felt. Materials treated with ‘FLAME RETARDANT’ just won’t support a flame. Even if a fire started in an untreated area, on reaching the treated area it would simply go out.
‘FLAME RETARDANT’ is SO EFFECTIVE that even when the intense heat of a blowtorch was directed at a treated tissue paper, held in the palm of a hand, the tissue only charred. It did not ignite. Also, the hand holding it was not burned as the chemical, in the presence of heat, forms a carbonized shield, deflecting heat away from the treated area.
‘FLAME RETARDANT’ is SO VERSATILE, this is the only flame retardant you will need to treat natural and synthetic materials, carpets, hessian, foam rubber, dry flowers, untreated timber, in fact almost anything that can absorb the chemical can be treated.
‘FLAME RETARDANT’ TREATMENT LASTS for the useful life of the material treated. Unaffected by years of walking (on carpets) or sitting (on furniture) or wearing (of clothes) and will withstand multiple chemical dry cleansings.
BRITISH STANDARDS & ACHIEVEMENTS TO DATE
FLAME RETARDANT has B.S.5852 parts 2 (crib 5) for both natural, mixed fibres (cotton/polyester) and pure synthetics such as polyester and Dralon.
FLAME RETARDANT passes B.S.5867 part 2 on both natural and synthetic fabrics and mixed. Natural fabrics include cotton, wool, cotton backed Dralon. Synthetics include nylon and mixed fibres such as cotton/polyester.
FLAME RETARDANT can also treat hessian, foam rubber, untreated wood and any other item that can absorb the chemical.
UL214 ( Test for flame propagation of fabrics and film conducted by Underwriters Laboratories Inc.)
FLAME RETARDANT passed 5 tests on a variety of natural, synthetic and blends of natural and synthetic textiles.
(Note: UL does not have a programme for listing, classifying or recognition of fire retardants except on Douglas Fir Timber).
ASTME 84-81a, also known as Steiner Tunnel Test.
This test is similar to ANSI 2.5; NFPA #255; UBC#42-1; and UL#723.
a) Test report # 17264 conducted on 6.4 oz/sq.yd polyester and cotton wool covering, fire retarded by spraying with FLAME RETARDANT showed the following results:
FLAMESPREAD – 0; FUEL CONTRIBUTED – 5; SMOKE DEVELOPED – 15; RATING – CLASS “A”.
b) Test report #18249 conducted on dense 2, 100-F Fir framing timber, fire retarded by spraying with FLAME RETARDANT, showed the following results:
FLAMESPREAD – 45; FUEL CONTRIBUTED – 4; SMOKE DEVELOPED – 75; RATING – CLASS “B”.
* NFPA 701 National Fire Protection Assn. test for flame resistant textiles.
FLAME RETARDANT passed on 8 different fabrics, some after 10 dry cleanings.
* ASTM E648, also known as NFPA 253, Critical Radiant Flux Test for carpets conducted on 28 oz level loop nylon carpet with jute back, fire retarded by spraying with FLAME RETARDANT showed the following results on 3 specimens tested; Critical Radiant Flux (greater than) 1.08 ( this indicates that NONE of the specimens continued to burn when the ignition was removed after ten minutes).
* California Fire Code 1940 – Para. 50. Test for flame resistant textiles.
FLAME RETARDANT passed tests on 6 types on natural, synthetic and blends.
