The most basic requirement for Flame Retardant textiles is to reduce the risk of most fires and fire spreads, thus gaining more escape time. Increasing the flash time from 5 minutes to 15 minutes means increasing the probability of success in escape. The so-called escape time includes the time to discover a fire, remind others, call a fire brigade, extinguish a fire, or escape from a building.
According to the characteristics of textiles made from two main types of textile fiber materials: natural fiber (cotton, wool, etc.) and chemical fiber (regenerated cellulose fiber, synthetic fiber, etc.), fabric flame retardant finishing and fiber body flame retardant method can be used to achieve resistance. Burning function. Compared with the flame-retardant finishing of the fabric, the fabric using the copolymerized flame-retardant fiber is more washable, and the hand feeling, dyeability and gas permeability are superior.
According to forecasts, the global market for flame-retardant fabrics will increase from $4.379 billion in 2017 to $5.787 billion in 2022. During the forecast period, the compound annual growth rate was 5.73%. The main driving force for the development of flame retardant textiles comes from two aspects. One is the concern for the safety of work or public places and the increasingly strict regulations of the government. For some large-scale high-risk enterprises such as petrochemical, natural gas and coal mines, it is also increasingly demanded. The use of high-performance flame-retardant protective clothing; Second, the global economic recovery, especially the economic development of Asia and China, the promotion of urbanization, involving urban construction including rail transit, high-speed trains, automobiles, etc., as well as some personal flame retardant The demand for protective products is rapidly emerging.
