It easy to apply and possesses high penetrating properties so it quickly penetrates the surface of all types of natural fabrics and some semi-synthetic materials that require fire protection. Flamex PF fire retardant spray for fabric can be used in a variety of industries and is frequently used in hospitals, schools, restaurants, hotels, theater buildings, homes, movie theaters, apartment buildings, etc. Flamex PF fire retardant spray for fabric is non-toxic, odorless, and is the best choice if you need to pass NFPA 701 or California Title 19 Section 1237.1 fire codes.
The unique chemical composition of this fire retardant penetrates deeply into the fabric. It’s highly durable to humidity, long-lasting, and will remain in the fabric until the fabric has been washed or dry cleaned two or more times. After a proper application, the fabric will become resistant to fire, and flames will often self-extinguish after ignition. Flamex PF works by creating an invisible layer on contact that when exposed to heat, creates a char forming barrier. Flamex PF is not suitable for painted, varnished, waxed or waterproofed materials.

How to apply a fire retardant spray to fabric:
Make sure that the fabric has been washed or vacuumed to remove dust.

If spraying, start at the upper left corner and apply the fire retardant across from end to end.
Continue working your way down and across while overlapping each pass.
After treating one side of the fabric, confirm that the opposite side is damp.
If the first side did not penetrate through, repeat the application to the opposite side .
Eliminate any folds in the fabric in order for air to dry the treatment thoroughly.
