How do I use ECOGARD flame retardants?

All flame retardants are liquid, similar to water, and can be applied using suitable spraying devices. Spray on the flame retardant product in accordance with the specifications, allow to dry well and you are done! 

In some cases, the item being treated must be completely immersed in the flame retardant. You can find details on this with the respective flame retardant product.

All flame retardants can also be applied mechanically by professional textile finishing companies.

 

Which fire classes can I achieve when impregnating items with flame retardant on my own?

Depending on the material, if used correctly, all common fire classes, such as flame retardant in accordance with DIN 4102 B1, flame retardant in accordance with ÖNORM B1-Q1-TR1 or fire classes in accordance with various classes in accordance with EN13501 can be achieved.

A precise statement as to which fire class was achieved after treatment can only be made by a fire test in a certified fire laboratory.

For some flame retardants, such as the ECOGARD B45, there is a general building inspection report in accordance with DIN 4102.
