Applications / What is Flame Retardant Surface Protection?

June 15, 2020

Different jobs have different demands and regulations. For some construction sites, fire safety standards require flame retardant (or fr-rated) products on-site to help prevent or slow the spread of fire. These include electrical wires and cables, fr clothing, and insulation materials, such as polystyrene and polyurethane foams. These specially treated products are especially important in healthcare facilities where a high level of protection from fire is needed to keep patients safe.

What does Flame Retardant mean?

What exactly is flame retardant? It is the process of adding a chemical substance to materials during the manufacturing process. It decreases a product’s flammability, and reduces the spread of fire on the jobsite (in the case of construction or renovations). These chemicals are added to many items such as baby products, construction and building materials, different types of surfaces, and flame resistant clothing.
