What are the standards for flame retardant protective clothing

Flame-retardant FR Coated Fabric protective clothing: refers to protective clothing that can slow down the spread of flames and carbonize clothing to form an isolation layer after directly receiving flames and hot objects to protect the safety and health of the human body. Clothing requirements: Use flame-retardant fabrics that can withstand multiple washings synthetic washing powder is built into the washing machine, according to the general washing density, temperature 60℃, washing time 15min, washing more than 50 times. Do not use hot-melt fabrics that can accumulate static electricity and discharge. The strength test of the clothing joint part: cut the test piece with the center width of the suture 50mm and the length 200mm from the four parts of the finished clothes and pants, and install it on the tensile testing machine.


The width of the clamp is 50mm, and the clamping distance is 150mm, the tensile test was carried out at a tensile speed of 200mm/s, the breaking load of each test piece was determined, and the lowest value was taken as the tensile strength of the joint. The fabric after flame-retardant finishing is qualified if it reaches the second level. The first class is an excellent product. After 50 times of washing, the test cloth shall not be lower than Grade. If the textile product is found to be melted and contracted in the test, it is considered as unqualified. All products that produce flame-retardant fabrics and produce flame-retardant clothing need to be supervised by the quality supervision and inspection department designated by the state. If the product meets the requirements of this standard, a certificate of conformity will be issued before mass production.


The technical department designated by the state shall conduct regular random inspections on the products of the flame-retardant fabric manufacturers or garment factories and the user departments. When the products are found to be unqualified, they shall be re-inspected in the same batch of products. The product will be discontinued immediately, pending processing. During the three-year storage period, the flame-retardant performance of the product should be basically stable, and the connected parts should be firm and reliable. Products that have been stored for an extended period of time shall be submitted for inspection in accordance with regulations and reconfirmed whether they are qualified. The quality performance test of the textile fabric used in the product is undertaken by the corresponding unit of the textile department. The manufacturer is responsible for product self-inspection and is responsible for its product quality.


In the clothing product, 1m should be cut as the work submitted for inspection. If the product is larger than 10000m per batch, 1m should be cut for every 10000m and sent to the technical inspection department for inspection. Manufacturers producing flame-retardant garments will submit 2 sets for inspection when they produce less than 2000 sets, and 2 sets for inspection every time 2000 sets are added. Marking, transportation and storage The outer packaging of the product should have the following marks: manufacturer name or trademark, certificate number, product name, quantity, grade, article number, production batch and date, gross weight, and packaging date. During transportation and storage, avoid exposure to the sun, rain and moisture, and not put it together with acids, alkalis, oils and corrosive materials. The storage warehouse should be ventilated and dry, and the product storage location should be 200mm away from the ground and walls.
