APPLICATION

Fabric Seal C™ is a highly concentrated version of the product, designed for shipping savings or commercial applications.

Most fabrics, when properly treated with the correct Fabric Seal dilution can pass the NFPA 701, FAR 25.853, British Standards 5852 (1,2), UFAC.

Fabric Seal™ Fire Retardants can be applied via Spray, Dipping or Machine application. The product must penetrate the fabric and be allowed to thoroughly dry to be effective. The recommended coverage rate is 300 ft2 per gallon after proper dilution. Most fabrics properly treated with this product will meet the NFPA 701 requirements.                                      

 It is recommended that a small sample be tested for penetration and color fastness before application. Excess material should be removed by mechanical action (wringing or spin cycle). Then simply allow to air dry or force dry with a mechanical dryer.

This product may be used on: carpet, draperies, furniture, wall coverings, rayon, polyester, most synthetics and blends.

Fabric Seal™ Fire Retardants contain water-soluble ingredients that can be removed by exposure to significant amounts of water during cleaning. It is recommended that the fabric be re-treated with Fabric Seal™ after dry cleaning three times or one machine washing.

Note: Some stiffening of the treated fabrics may occur, especially with heavier treatments. It is the end users responsibility to find the optimal degree of fire retardancy vs. any stiffening for their application.
