Flame Retardant Fabrics

Flame retardant fabrics are specially manufactured or treated with chemicals to resist burning and prevent the garment catching fire when used in everyday working environments.

Please Note:
Fire retardant materials should not be confused with fire resistant materials, a fire resistant material is especially designed to resist burning and withstand heat, however, fire retardant materials are designed to burn more slowly.

Important Information:
When working with either Flame retardant or Flame resistant materials, it’s very important to remember that once you have applied any logo or branding  to either fabric method, the garment now loses its flame-retardant certificate.

Dpt- Online are the only company to hold over 15 certifications and counting for all our FR Certified Systems for different fabrics tested in laboratory conditions to make sure our transfers are suitable for each fabric and fit for purpose.

When it comes to Flame Retardant fabric, at no point should the properties of the garment ever be compromised when choosing the right method for employee / Logo or brand identification.

Remember when choosing a transfer to complement your garment it’s important to find out what the garment is made from. The last thing you want to do is choose a garment that needs to be washed at 90 degrees and find its maximum washing temperature is only 40 degrees.
Is your customers garment a promotional giveaway or something that has to last over 50 washes. At Dpt our main aim is to get you the right product at the right price for the budget your customer can afford whilst getting the best quality.

When it comes to the production there are many things to think about not only from our side but your customers side.
The better the artwork you supply us the faster we can have your artwork proof back to you. Colour matching can take time and adds to your turnaround times, it’s always worth asking if your customers know the pantone colours of their company logo.
Carrier films are a massive point to think about, Polyester might be more expensive but can speed up application times by more than twice.

Application temperatures and pressure used when applying the final product to the garment is one of the most important but overlooked parts of the procedure.
It’s important the adhesive backer is fully melted and the correct pressure is applied when pressing the garment. Application instructions will be sent out on all orders to help the process be as easy as possible.
