Fire retardant treatment based on dilution gas concept and padding process for non woven polyester

In order to perform fire behaviour, an alternative plan to treat the polyester non woven consists in padding the textile with formulation based on binder resin.

The formulation of padding is based on dispersion of fire retardant system based on dilution concept.

The additives role consists in its interferences in the combustion train of polymer. The ignition and the degradation of material is limited due to the dilution of combustion of gas.

The low pick up rate, allow to maintain the softness of textiles. The padding process is adequate for non woven and woven with low density

The setting up of the treatment is directly interesting for textile industry. It is an opportunity to propose a fire retardant product based on polyester totally free of halogen. The potential applications cover a large range of fields: carpet, home furniture, automotive equipment, railways.
