Flame Resistant Vs. Flame Retardant

Flame-resistant materials are those that inherently resist catching fire or are difficult to ignite.

Flame retardants are chemicals or substances applied to materials or products to slow down or inhibit the spread of flames and reduce the combustion rate.

It's important to note that flame-resistant and flame-retardant properties are not the same. Flame-resistant materials are inherently resistant to fire, while flame-retardant materials have been treated with chemicals to reduce flammability.

How many times you can wash?

FR gear is designed to provide protection against flames and heat, but repeated washing can affect its performance over time. Most of our FR gear is good for up to 50 washes, give and take a couple. Some key guidelines for washing FR gear are:

  • Use Mild Detergent
  • Avoid High Temperatures
  • No Fabric Softeners
  • Don't Over Load Machine
  • Check for Damages
  • Follow the manufacturer's guidelines
