Finishing composed of flame retardant substances, hindering the spread of fire. Safety is one of the greatest obsessions of our time, and in the home textile sector, articles that respect and comply with fire protection standards are increasingly sought. In this way, the J. F Almeida has developed a special textile finish with anti-fire properties, which is essential in many industries to protect from sources of ignition, such as sparks and spills, and in homes where home textiles developed with the NEFLAME finish have the ability to delay and even inhibition of small fires. NEFLAME is easy to apply, does not change the properties of textile fibers, provides a finish with an appropriate and pleasant touch, does not change the shade of reds and leaves no residual smell/odor. Can be applied to 100% CO articles, and combines with linen, viscose, modal and other fibers. It is suitable for different types of fibers, however, the individual properties of each fiber must be observed. Fire behavior is an elementary safety concern with home textile items, items that are flame retardant and with anti-fire characteristics are intended. Be}ng on security, J. F. Almeida bet on the performance of fire behavior by developing the NEFLAME finish, a flame-retardant finish. Is cer=fied in external laboratories for fire resistance in various standards. In the fire behavior of home textiles in general, they meet the standards ASTM D 1230, CAN/CGSB 4.2 No. 27.5, ASTM D 6413 and DIN EN ISO 15025.
