Fire Retardant Treatment Specifications
Turning Star treats and/or cleans customer-supplied materials with selected flame retardants to meet the applicable required flame retardant standards.
Turning Star relies on its experience and prior 3rd party testing to validate the flame retardant products and application methods used by Turning Star when treating customers’ materials. In-house lab testing or 3rd party lab testing for customer’s material can be specified.
- Fabrics and Decorations
NFPA 701; NFPA 705; NYC R805; CAL 1237.1; 16 CFR 25 App. F Vertical (FAR Part 25); MVSS 302
NFPA 260 (cover fabric only)
- Surfaces, Walls and Ceilings
ASTM E-84 Class A (fabrics and soft woods)
ASTM E-84 Class B (hard woods)
Flame retardant treatment cannot be applied after a stain repellant has been applied to the material. Turning Star can add a stain repellant to the material after flame retardant treatment.
Apparent Color Shift
In some fabrics there may be a slight weakening of vibrant colors to slightly more pastel. Sample testing in advance of treatment may be performed for customer approval. Customer will provide additional fabric, or designate usage of supplied fabric, for this testing, one (1) lineal yard.
Change in Hand
In some fabrics there may be a slight change in hand of the fabric. Sample testing in advance of treatment may be performed for customer approval. Customer will provide additional fabric, or
designate usage of supplied fabric, for this testing, one (1) lineal yard.
Dye and Finish Reactions
In some rare instances, there can be a reaction between the flame retardant chemicals or the cleaning compounds and the finishes on the fabrics. These reactions may be immediate or they may develop over weeks or months. In all instances, this is a result of the dye not being set properly or other improper finishing prior to receipt by Turning Star and subsequent treatment, and is a latent defect of the provided material, not of Turning Star’s flame retardant treatment.
