Flamebloc 101 - Paper & Cloth
Char Forming Penetrating Fire Retardant for Synthetic Fabrics
Carbon char forms between fire and fabric, reducing effect of the fire, heat and smoke
Treatment can be dipped or sprayed onto fabric
Contains no petroleum derivatives
Flamebloc GS 101 is a ready-to-use flame retardant for use on synthetic fabric fibers such as polyester, rayon, acrylic. etc. Flamebloc GS 101 is an aqueous solution containing polymeric aminopolyphosphate and a mixture of brominated salts as its active ingredients. There are no polybrominated diphenyl ethers in the composition. Upon exposure to heat and flame, a char forms on the surface of the fabric, which acts as a fire, heat, and smoke barrier. The proprietary active ingredients of this product contribute to flame resistance by melting below flaming temperatures and resolidifying
in the form of a carbon (char) that acts as a barrier between the fabric and the flame. As a result, Flamebloc GS 101 will decrease smoke evolution. In addition, it will also provide resistance to flameless combustion, referred to as afterglow.
Appearance: Colorless liquid
Density @ 25°C (77°F): 1.08 - 1.14 g/ml
Approximate volume in kilogram: 901 ml pH
Flamebloc GS 101 is highly penetrating and can be added to synthetic fabrics during any stage of the manufacturing process as long as there is no water phase rinsing or cleaning process that occurs to the fabric post fabric being treated. Flamebloc GS 101 is not permanent to the fabric because there is no chemical bonding and thus, treatment will have to be re-applied after any machine washing or water rinsing. Flamebloc GS 101 is a water soluble product easily washed off with soap and water. Flamebloc GS 101 is water-based has a low toxicity, contains no VOC, is non-volatile, contains no petroleum derivatives. and is nonflammable and non-combustible. Applied on fabric, it is highly versatile as Fabric can be sprayed or dipped in solutions of Flamebloc GS 101.
