Flame Retardants In Household Items Save Lives
Public Safety in the Home - When Every Second Counts
Consumers are often unaware that household items, like a sofa or a TV set, contain highly flammable materials such as plastics and polyurethane foam. These materials are a potential fire risk; they ignite easily and can engulf a room in flames within minutes. Flame retardant plastics and foams can effectively stop the burning process and delay the ignition period. This allows people more time to escape and for fire crews to arrive on the scene.
