Flamex SF - Syn Fiber

Treating synthetic fabrics can be difficult since the synthetic threads of the fabric do not absorb liquids in the same manner that a natural fibre does. Roscoflamex SF is designed to be a penetrating treatment that bonds to the surface of the threads deep within the weave of the material, securing the flame-retardant chemicals and rendering an effective protective treatment. Roscoflamex SF will treat many synthetic fabrics, such as polyesters, nylons, acrylics and rayon’s, as well as most cotton/synthetic blends. A vast range of synthetic fabrics are used in scenery properties and costumer construction. While Roscoflamex SF will work with many of these, always test a sample to insure compatibility and effectiveness. Leaving no residue or powdery build up, Roscoflamex SF simplifies the task of insuring all your soft goods and scenic fabrics will meet the Fire Marshall's expectations.
Using Roscoflamex SF

Roscoflamex SF has been premixed and does not require any further dilution. The method of application and the amount of

Roscoflamex SF required for sufficient treatment varies with the fabrics in use.

Coverage
One gallon of Roscoflamex SF will treat approximately 500 square feet (46.4 square meters) of fabric.

Applying Roscoflamex SF

Dipping: This is the most efficient method of impregnation. Immerse completely for ten minutes, and hang to dry.

Brushing: Using a wide lay-in brush, brush the Flamex solution into the fibres of the material being treated. Brush in the solution using a criss-crossing pattern to insure adequate absorption.

Spraying: In a spray application, it is very important that an adequate amount of the Flamex be absorbed. In calculating the amount of solution needed, remember that a substantial portion of the spray will not fall on the fabric. Use a Hudson-type sprayer with a medium nozzle setting. For best results, hang the material to be treated and spray in a back and forth pattern starting at the bottom and working your way up to the top of the fabric sample.
Over saturating the fabric may cause it to stiffen or otherwise alter its hand. ALWAYS treat a test sample to determine how the fabric will react and to test for effective flame retardance.

Storage

Store Flamex products in non-metallic containers. When metal sprayers are used, they should be thoroughly cleaned immediately after use, including nozzles and accessories. Avoid use of metal buckets or paint containers when possible.
