Technological improvements in these fabrics have facilitated the development of flame barriers, coverings, numerous types of personal protective equipment, and more. This blog post will discuss the differences between flame-resistant and fire-retardant fabrics, common applications of these fabrics, and more.
Synthetic fibers comprise most of the top choices for fire-resistant fabrics. While most natural fibers are flammable, plastic-based fibers will often melt due to the heat instead of igniting. Nylon and polyester fabrics have become especially popular due to their high melting points and low thermal conductivity. For additional protection, manufacturers can treat the fibers with a solution of fire-resistant chemicals.
