Saraflam-CWF | Flame Retardant for Cotton
Saraflam-CWF is an organo phosphorous durable flame retardant for 100%
cellulosic fibres such as cotton and regenerated cellulosic fibres like viscose, modal, tencel. Saraflam-CWF chemically reacts with these fibres thereby imparting durable flame retardancy which can withstand several launderings and dry cleanings. Saraflam-CWF does not affect the drape of the fabric and does not leave any white residue on the fabric thus the minimum effect on the shade.
Saraflam-CWF can also be combined with other finishing agents. Saraflam-CWF prevents flame propagation in presence of fire. It is recommended for home textiles, industrial textiles, and apparels.
||No after-burning or after-glow
||Withstands multiple home laundering
||Does not affect the feel or drape of the fabric
||Compatible with other finishing agents
||Colourless viscous liquid
|pH of 1% solution||4 +/- 1
|Miscibility||Miscible with water
||Compatible with cationic, anionic and nonionic products
|Stability||Stable to dilute acids and dilute alkalies
Before finishing with Saraflam-CWF, please ensure that the fabric is free from residues of earlier treatment which could otherwise hamper the performance of Saraflam-CWF
Please ensure that the padding temperature does not exceed 30 deg.C
Final pH of fabric should be 6.5-7 before drying.
Dry add-on of minimum 25-30% ensures required performance
Flame retardancy depends upon actual add-on of Saraflam-CWF on the finished fabric, therefore lab trials are recommended to arrive at required dosage
Many common finishes like silicone softeners, PE emulsions etc. may have a negative influence on flame retardancy, therefore prelab-trials are essential to assess the suitability of other softners
Saraflam-CWF is recommended for following test methods.
