Flame Retardant Polyester Fiber
Flame retardant polyester fiber, abbreviated as FR-PET, refers to the copolymerization, blending or finishing, and other methods to make polyester fiber with non-combustible or non-flammable properties under combustion conditions to achieve the flame retardant effect.
In the chemical fiber market, polyester fiber is the most widely used and has the largest production. But it has the disadvantage of flammability. Flame retardant polyester fiber is a kind of functional fiber specially developed to improve the flammability defect of an ordinary one. It is widely used in apparel, household, decoration, non-woven fabrics, and fillers.
Relying on the strong R&D capability, Hubei decon has successfully produced Flame Retardant Polyester Chip, which can be used for FR-PET Spinning. For more information about FR PET Chip, you can click https://www.polyestermfg.com/flame-retardant-polyester-chip/
The fiber flame retardant effect of our FR-PET can reach the European standard NF P92-507M1 level. It is a phosphorus copolymer flame retardant. Phosphorus content can reach 6500ppm. The limit of oxygen index is no less than 30. Compared with FR-PET made from flame retardant masterbatch, our flame retardant fiber has more effective phosphorus element content, better dyeing uniformity, lower cost, and better stability.
FR PET Fabric Characteristics
1. Excellent and permanent flame retardant properties
It has good performance in preventing flame spread, smoke release, melt resistance, and durability, meeting the requirements of flame retardant fabrics in the fields of decorative materials, automobile interiors, old and young clothing, workwear, and military canvas tents, etc.
2. Distinctive varieties series
It can meet the requirements of different customers. Except for the regular bright or semi-dull grade FR PET, advanced varieties also include full-dull grade flame retardant, cationic flame retardant, and melt-resistant drop flame retardant. It can meet the requirements of different customers.
3. Stable and durable flame retardant performance, high dyeing rate, and good dyeing uniformity
Trend of FR Fiber
With the continuous increase of human safety awareness and the continuous improvement of flame-retardant regulations, the development of flame-retardant textiles will continue to increase, especially permanent flame-retardant textiles will become a new hot spot in the market. The research on flame retardant modified polymer fibers may show the following development trend.
➤1. Long-lasting and High-quality FR Fiber
Long-term environmental protection and high-quality flame-retardant fibers are the future development trend. For example, melt-spun fibers with integrated long-term flame-retardant, anti-melt drop and smoke suppression, and high-strength, environmentally-friendly and long-term flame-retardant wet-spun fibers.
➤2. Functional Composite FR Fiber
Composite functional fibers include fibers with properties of flame retardant water repellent, flame retardant antistatic, flame retardant and antibacterial.
➤3. Environment-friendly FR Fiber
The development of high-efficiency, non-toxic, halogen-free, smoke-free, and drop-free flame-retardant fibers is the future development trend.
➤4. Comfortable FR Fiber
As far as the comfortable flame-retardant fiber is concerned, it should have flame retardancy, heat and humidity comfort, and good processability at the same time.
➤5. High-tech FR Fiber
The high-tech flame-retardant fiber has a unique molecular structure. It does not need to add flame retardants or undergo modification. It has high temperature resistance and flame retardancy, and high added value and good economic benefits. It is the future direction of flame-retardant fibers.
