There are two methods of making a fabric flame retardant. The first involves treating it with a flame-retardant chemical. This improves resistance to ignition. Applying chemicals to an untreated fabric is a temporary solution and application of chemicals may be needed after a period of time and may not withstand washing.
The second is specialist performance fabrics (inherently flame retardant) which are flame resistance within the yarn. These fabrics are a much safer choice for any contract environment and withstand the test of time. These FR fabrics add protection against hazardous fire and often offer additional resistance from infection with germ proof antimicrobial properties, are waterproof and designed to be specifically more durable.
