Treating synthetic fabrics can be difficult since the synthetic threads of the fabric do not absorb liquids in the same manner that a natural fiber does. Roscoflamex SF is designed to be a penetrating treatment that bonds to the surface of the threads deep within the weave of the material, securing the flame retardant chemicals and rendering an effective protective treatment. Roscoflamex SF will treat many synthetic fabrics, such as polyesters, nylons, acrylics and rayons, as well as most cotton/synthetic blends. A vast range of synthetic fabrics are used in scenery properties and costumer construction. While Roscoflamex SF will work with many of these, always test a sample to insure compatibility and effectiveness. Leaving no residue or powdery build up, Roscoflamex SF simplifies the task of insuring all your softgoods and scenic fabrics will meet the Fire Marshall's expectations.
Roscoflamex WD has been premixed and does not require any further dilution. The method of application and the amount of Roscoflamex WD required for sufficient treatment varies with the materials in use.
Dipping: This is the most efficient method of impregnation. Immerse completely for ten minutes, and hang to dry.
Brushing: Using a wide lay-in brush, brush the Flamex solution into the fibers of the material being treated. Brush in the solution using a criss-crossing pattern to insure adequate absorption. Saturate the material, allow to absorb and then reapply a second treatment.
Spraying: In a spray application, it is very important that an adequate amount of the Flamex be absorbed. In calculating the amount of solution needed, remember that a substantial portion of the spray will not fall on the material. Use a Hudson-type sprayer with a medium nozzle setting. Saturate the material, allow to absorb and then reapply a second treatment.
The absorption rate of the wood or cellulosic materials being used may dramatically affect proper flame retardance. Make sure you test for effective flame retardance.
MIX RATIO: Roscoflamex Raw Wood is designed to be used straight out of the bottle. Do not dilute.
HAZARD: May cause skin and eye irritation on some people. Use in a well ventilated area.
COVERAGE: Estimated 150-200 square feet per gallon.
