Q : Whats the classification of flame retardant fabric?
A : --Disposable FR fabrics
--Chemical treated FR fabrics
--Inherently FR fabrics
Q : What is the difference between fire retardant and fire resistance?
A: A fire retardant material slows burning across the surface of a combustible substrate. A fire resistive material delays heat penetration through a substrate.
Q: How to ensure your product quality?
A: Xinke protective has wholesome and updated test facilities, Test center has picture and more details. And we can provide the certificates you need.

Q:Whats the difference between Inherent Flame Resistance and Treatments?
A:Inherently flame resistant fibers contain an essential characteristic that protects the wearer from an ignition source.Treatments or treated fibers have an applied chemical treatment that changes the original level of flame resistance.Flame resistant garments are generally made from either flame resistant
materials such as those made from aramid fibers, melamine fibers, or those treated with flame resistant "FR" treatments such as Ammonia or Heat Cure . FR treatments can Wash Out over time, shorting the
life of the garment.
Q:How do normal fabrics react to ignition?
A:Normal fabrics and garments will burn away from the point of ignition with an increasing rate of flame spread and continue to burn after removal of the ignition source. Normal fabrics will continue to burn until they are extinguished or all flammable material is consumed.
Q:What is the best FR fiber or fabric?
A:There is no perfect flame-resistant fabric system that meets all needs. Each FR fiber or treated fabric has certain properties that, depending on end use requirements,can be either benefits or shortcomings. Blending different fibers attempts to balance these properties for maximum fabric performance.
Q:Is 100% cotton flame resistant?
A:No. In most cases, 100% cotton is flammable. It can ignite and continue to burn after being exposed to an ignition source. Many people understand the burning and melting hazards of nylon and polyester fabrics, but fail to recognize the danger of wearing 100% cotton when exposed to an ignition source. However, cotton can be a good fabric to wear underneath proper FR clothing.
Q:Should I specify the strictest code for all my fabrics, to be safe?
A:No. If you "over specify" by requesting a standard that is higher than necessary, you may end up over treating your fabrics and that can cause problems. Specify only the code that is required.
Q:What about certificates?
A:We issue certificates for all flame retarded fabrics. When you require the fabric to meet a specific fire code, a certificate of flame retardancy is need.

It is important that you build a relationship and trust your fabric finisher.
