Description:
Flame retardant products act as a barrier between flame and foam of the mattress or pillow, and can ensure an appropriate fire safety level. The common flame retardant products available in the market use chemical finish and surface treatments to offer fire resistance properties. These processes affect textile properties and durability.

The Catalan company offers a new solutions for both safe and comfortable night sleep. They developed a very innovative hypoallergenic textile that unites inherent flame-retardancy, waterproofness, stretchability and breathability.
This product is suitable for seats, mattress or pillow protection, as it doesn´t melt or form droplets in case of burning, and acts as a shield to prevent the further spread of the fire.
The flame-retardant and self-extinguishing properties are inherent, the protection is built into the fiber itself and can never be worn away or washed out, which means they can support up to 100 washing cycles at 95ºC without any alteration.
The product is waterproof and breathable, protecting foams again liquid spillage, stains, bacteria or allergen and reducing heat or humidity. The moisture management of the fibers provides a dry and comfortable environment and increase the comfort of the user.
The fabric is specifically engineered to provide the best user experience: chemical-free fibers, hypoallergenic components, 85% elastic recovery, climate and humidity control.
The manufacture process is eco-friendly, the product is 100 % biobased and doesn´t contain any harmful chemical.
This textile is recommended for sensitive skins and baby use according to international standards.
