chemical FR treatments

Treated Fire-Retardant Fabrics are chemically treated textiles and foams that have a much slower burning rate when exposed to fire. The chemicals used to treat fabrics belong to several treatment classes including: brominated, chlorinated, phosphorus-containing, nitrogen-containing, and inorganic flame retardants. Many flame-retardant chemicals are also known as PBDE’s or polybrominated diphenyl ethers some of which have been banned due to their high toxic effects.
