What are flame retardants?

Flame retardants are chemicals that are applied to materials to prevent the start or slow the growth of fire. They have been used in many consumer and industrial products since the 1970s, to decrease the ability of materials to ignite.

Flame retardants are often added or applied to the following products.

  • Furnishings, such as foam, upholstery, mattresses, carpets, curtains, and fabric blinds.
  • Electronics and electrical devices, such as computers, laptops, phones, televisions, and household appliances, plus wires and cables.
  • Building and construction materials, including electrical wires and cables, and insulation materials, such as polystyrene and polyurethane insulation foams.
  • Transportation products, such as seats, seat covers and fillings, bumpers, overhead compartments, and other parts of automobiles, airplanes, ships, and yachts.

Many flame retardants have been removed from the market or are no longer produced. However, because they do not easily break down, they can remain persistent in the environment for years. They can also bioaccumulate, or build up in people and animals over time.

Flame retardants are an invisible protection against the potentially devastating impact of fire.

What is the difference between Flame retardant and Fire-resistant?

  • Fire-Resistant: the materials and naturally resistant to flame
  • These type of fabrics may catch fire, but they will either self-extinguish or burn extremely slowly.
  • The most important function of these materials and fabrics is to prevent the further spread of fire.
  • Flame Resistant:these term is a synonym of fire-resistant. If you hear this term used in place of flame-resistant, don't be confused. They mean exactly the same thing, and it is correct to use them interchangeably.
  • Flame-Retardant:fire-retardant fabrics are those that have undergone chemical treatment to acquire some of the same properties flame-resistant fabrics inherently have.
  • Any type of fabrics may be used, but it must undergo chemical treatment before it can be considered like flame retardant.
  • As a result of these chemicals procedures, flame-retardant fabrics become self-extinguishing and slow-burning.
