Washing of FR garments is important in maximising garment life and ensuring the FR properties are not degraded. Garments should be kept clean and free from oil and dirt. Following correct washing processes will ensure users derive a long life from their Fyrban garment.

GENERAL                            

All FR garments should be regularly inspected for damage or wear on receipt, after storage and/or washing and before use. Pay particular attention to zips, seams and any fastenings or hardware to ensure proper functioning. Damaged or ripped garments may not protect properly so should be disposed of in suitable manner according to any contamination and local regulations.

Heavy soiling of garments is likely to affect thermal performance and reduce flame retardant properties – especially where garments may be contaminated by flammable liquids such as oils which may ignite and burn on the fabric. It is better to wash garments more frequently than to allow garments to become over-soiled.

In general avoid using fabric softeners on FR materials. Softeners may affect FR properties.

Professional Industrial washing is preferable to domestic laundering. Industrial washing is more likely to be done correctly, to ensure no damaging detergents or fabric softeners are used  and is designed to remove contaminants such as oils which might affect FR performance.

Generally try to wash at less than maximum temperatures unless required to remove oils etc.

STORAGE                            

Ensure garments to be stored are clean and dry. Store in dry area and away from direct sunlight or fluorescent light as ultraviolet may cause colour change or fading.

SORTING                            

Generally sort garments before washing into fabric type, colours and / or degree of soiling and wash separately. Wash FR garments separately from other clothing to avoid transfer of any foreign flammable fibres or contaminants.

PRE-TREATMENT             

Pre-treat any greasy staines and collar / cuffs

  5. Rinse garments in soft water as detergent residues may affect FR properties.
  6. Iron at low pressure and for short periods only.

Garments which are damaged or excessively worn should not be used in any hazardous area and should be disposed of suitably, depending upon contamination and local regulations. Before disposal cutting off arms and legs of garments can ensure they cannot then be used in error.
