Aramid fiber is a new high-tech synthetic fiber. Aramid flame retardant fabrics have excellent properties such as ultra-high strength, high modulus and high temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, light weight, insulation, aging resistance, long life cycle, etc. Aramid flame retardant fabrics are widely used in composite materials, bullet-proof products, building materials, special protective clothing, electronic equipment and other fields.
1. the difference between aramid flame retardant fabric and Modacrylic flame retardant fabric
First of all, the color of the fabric is very different, Modacrylic flame retardant fabrics are usually fluorescent yellow color, followed by blue and black. The aramid flame retardant fabric has orange, dark blue, army green.
Secondly, the distinction between aramid flame retardant fabric and Modacrylic flame retardant fabric composition and function. Aramid flame retardant fabric has permanent flame retardant, non-melting, non-toxic combustion, excellent chemical resistance, excellent mechanical properties. The protective clothes made of this kind of fabric do not burn, melt, shrink and smoke when exposed to fire, especially when exposed to high temperatures of 900-1500 C, the cloth surface will rapidly carbonize and thicken. Modacrylic flame-retardant fabric is made of acrylic chloride fiber or Protex fiber with a certain proportion of other flame-retardant fiber, conductive fiber and long staple cotton.
Aramid flame retardant fabric weight is 150G, 180G and other lighter weight, especially suitable for summer wear. Modacrylic flame retardant fabric has good thermal insulation function, so it is suitable for autumn and winter wear. Modacrylic flame retardant fabrics have the function of anti-static. Aramid flame retardant fabrics do not have the function of anti-static. It is necessary to weave anti-static fibers into yarns.
2. difference between aramid flame retardant fabric and cotton flame retardant fabric
At present, the two best-selling flame retardant fabrics on the market are aramid flame retardant fabrics and cotton flame retardant fabrics. The price of aramid fabrics is more than five times higher than that of cotton flame retardant fabrics. Aramid flame retardant fabric belongs to fiber flame retardant, is a natural flame retardant fiber, do not need to do flame retardant finishing, fabric feel soft, strong, good flame retardant performance, high temperature resistance, especially in the sudden high temperature of 900-1500 degrees Celsius, the fabric will quickly carbonization and thickening; cotton flame retardant fabric belongs to finishing flame retardant fabric material. It does not have flame retardant properties, and only after flame retardant treatment can it have flame retardant properties. The physical properties and flame retardant properties of cotton flame retardant fabrics are inferior to aramid flame retardant fabrics.
Aramid flame retardant fabrics are difficult to be dyed due to their fiber properties, low yield and expensive raw materials. All cotton flame retardant fabrics have high yield, mature manufacturing process, and raw material prices are not very expensive. Therefore, the production cost of aramid flame retardant fabric is also very high.
Finally, the aramid flame retardant fabric has high wear resistance and washability and wears for a long time. Aramid flame retardant fabrics and cotton flame retardant fabrics are widely used in fire suits, racing suits, military uniforms, aviation, petrochemical fields, power industry.
