FIRE FIGHTER products are flame and heat resistant, which is indispensable to motor sport clothing, workwear and all kind of protective clothing. FIRE FIGHTER is also suitable for embroidering aeroplane seat cushions and for many other applications where fire-resistant properties are required. "Flame resistant" describes a material inherently resistant to catching fire when exposed to a flame; it does not melt or drip and will self-extinguish without the heat source, therefore preventing the fire from spreading. In contrast, a flame-retardant thread (see Polyneon FR) refers to a material that has been chemically treated to self-extinguish. Please always make sure to select the right thread according to your customer's requirements and the applicable laws and regulations.
