Flame retardant undergarments are treated with a special chemical application, to be slow-burning or self-extinguishing when exposed to an open flame. In high risk environments, wearing the correct flame retardant undergarment will help to minimise injury. All flame retardant undergarments comply with EN ISO 11612 safety standards.
What is the difference between flame resistant and flame retardant? The difference lies in how each garment is made. Flame retardant fabric has been treated with a special chemical application. Fire resistant fabric will not quality as fire resistant unless it is made of certain nonflammable fibres.
