Cotton nylon flame retardant fabric is a flame retardant fabric made of cotton and nylon blended fabric treated by PROBAN flame retardant process.
Cotton nylon flame retardant fabric requirements for raw fabric
In general terms, the nylon content should be no more than 20%. Usually we see 88% cotton fiber + 12% nylon fiber.
The polyamide fiber such as nylon generally has a melting point of 215 ° C, a decomposition temperature of 315 ° C, and a ignition point of 530 ° C. Because of its large difference between the melting point and the ignition temperature, it is easier to melt and drip when burning, and it is out of the source without burning. Therefore, nylon (nylon) fiber is considered to have self-extinguishing property.
Cotton nylon flame retardant fabric requirements for flame retardants
The flame retardant containing nitrogen and phosphorus is very effective on polyester and cotton fabrics, but the effect on nylon fabric is not ideal, and the flame retardant effect of chlorine-containing flame retardant such as chloride and bromide on nylon It is not very useful. In actual production, we generally use Proban flame retardant, a phosphorus-containing flame retardant. Generally, when the content of nylon is 12%, the flame retardant performance can reach EN470-1, EN11611, EN11612, EN531, EN533, BS5852, NFPA2112, NFPA, ASTM and GB8965-98, and the like.
Characteristics of cotton nylon flame retardant fabric
The main feature of cotton nylon flame retardant fabrics is the use of this flame retardant to produce a permanent cross-linking inside the fabric, which makes it durable and flame-retardant, with good wear resistance and strength. Better, softer to the touch, good washing resistance, non-toxic and odorless, safe and reliable to the human body, breathable and breathable, soft to the touch, comfortable to wear, this flame retardant fabric can effectively prevent the flame from spreading and maintain The original properties of the fabric.
In addition to excellent flame retardant properties, the protective clothing made of cotton nylon flame retardant fabric can effectively prevent sparks and metal droplets from splashing. It has higher ATPV value, better thermal protection performance and is flame retardant. A more high-end choice in fabrics.
