Flame Retardant vs. Flame Resistant Threads And Yarns

What Is The Difference Between Flame Retardant And Flame Resistant Threads And Yarns
 
Untreated continuous multifilament polyester yarn, on the left, burns vigorously when the ignition temperature is reached, then melts, emits black smoke, and drips. FR treated continuous multifilament polyester, in the middle, shrinks away from the flame, melts, and drips, but it resists flaming once the source is removed. Therefore the smoke is greatly reduced and the retardant has done its job. Untreated aramid yarn, on the right, burns with difficulty because of its high LOI, so the flame extinguishes when the heat source is removed. Aramid does not melt but decomposes, showing signs of thermal degradation.
