Flamebloc GS 100
Flamebloc GS 100 is a concentrated flame retardant that can be diluted with water for use on both natural and synthetic fabric such as cotton, burlap, rayon, polyester, etc. Dilution with water should be done to determine the most effective concentration required to pass flame retardant protocol. Flamebloc GS 100 is a proprietary aqueous solution containing a polymeric amino polyphosphate that contains no polybrominated diphenyl ethers in its composition.
Upon exposure to heat and flame, a char forms on the surface of the fabric, which acts as a deterrent to fire, heat, and smoke. 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 100 will decrease smoke evolution. In addition, it will provide resistance to flameless combustion, referred to as afterglow.

Flamebloc GS 100 is highly penetrating and can be applied during various stages of fabric manufacturing. This product is water-based, is non-volatile, contains no VOC or petroleum derivatives, and is non-flammable and noncombustible. Applied on fabric, it is highly versatile. Fabric can be sprayed or dipped in solutions of Flamebloc GS 100.
Flamebloc GS 100 can be added to natural and synthetic fabrics during any stage of the manufacturing process as long as there is no water rinsing or aqueous cleaning of the fabric after it has been treated. Treatment of the fabric by Flamebloc GS 100 is not permanent because treatment does not provide a chemical bond Flamebloc GS 100 will need to be re-applied after any machine washing or water rinsing, however Flamebloc GS 100 will pass 3 dry-cleaning cycles.
