    Flame Retardant Textiles

    Redwood TTM - Flame Retardant Textiles ImageRedwood have historically specialised in the development and production of various flame retardant (FR) textiles. There are a number of manufacturing techniques to deliver flame retardance and Redwood have the expertise to advise you which is the most appropriate for your end use.

    Flame retardance in textiles can be achieved in a number of ways and Redwood can provide the full range of FR options:

    • Inherent – These materials have flame resistance built into their chemical structure
    • Durable – The impregnated FR treatment will withstand washing
    • Non Durable – The fabric cannot be washed as the impregnated FR treatment will be washed off
    • Coated – The FR treatment is applied as a back coating

    Redwood will happily advise you, depending on the application and specific requirements of end use, which base material construction is most appropriate. For example if a degree of stretch is required then a knitted fabric will be the most suitable with woven fabrics providing more rigidity.

    The video below demonstrates some of the factors that need to be considered to determine the right FR fabric for your purpose.

    There are a number of coatings available to provide fire retardancy but Redwood champion the use of PROBAN® where suitable due to the international reputation of the brand that provides security of performance and independent accreditation.
