OUR PART # FLAMEX-DF
Many fabrics and materials used in scenery and costumes are delicate and have a gentle hand and soft drape. Treating these fabrics presents a challenge to develop an adequate flame retardance without causing the materials to stiffen or otherwise alter their drape. Flamex DF is a gentle solution that maintains the soft qualities of the fabric while still providing a safe and secure flame treatment. Flamex DF works with most natural or synthetic fiber fabrics.
Rosco Flamex DF has been premixed and does not require any further dilution. The method of application and the amount of Flamex required for sufficient treatment varies with the fabrics in use. In order to maintain the soft drape of the fabric, spray application in multiple light passes is recommended.
One gallon of Flamex DF will treat approximately 600 square feet (55.8 square meters) of fabric.
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.
Flamex DF has been approved for use by the California and New York City Fire Marshall and has been tested according to NFPA 701.
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.
