Compulsory standards for flame-retardant textiles need to be issued urgently

According to relevant statistics, 1/3 of fires are caused by the spread of fire after textiles are ignited, such as curtains and tablecloths. Once these non-flame-retardant textiles burn, they will instantly produce a large amount of thick smoke and melt droplets. Although the cause of these fires was not textiles, the spread of the fires was severe. If these textiles have flame retardant properties, it will give people time to escape, even if it is just a few seconds, it may save many lives. ”

In fact, our country began the technological research and development of flame-retardant products around the 1990s. Many years later, why have their products not been widely promoted and applied? There are many reasons:

First, the public does not have enough understanding of this, and the awareness of personal protection is not clear. As a result, flame-retardant products and clothing are mostly used in the field of professional workwear, and it is difficult to promote civilian use. The second is the price issue. Compared with the civilian field, whether it is professional workwear or military fields, the demand for flame-retardant products is still relatively small. In addition, the price of flame-retardant products itself is also slightly higher. For many years, product prices have been at Relatively high. Third, from a national level, this is also the most important point. Our country does not have complete laws, regulations or mandatory standards, and there is no binding force on the use of flame retardant products in some public places.

With the development of society, there are more and more high-rise buildings, hotels and other places. However, the focus on emergency systems cannot just stop at “fire fighting”, but should prevent problems before they occur. For example, it is very difficult to put out fires in high-rise buildings. If such places can be equipped with fire blankets, escape ropes, or use flame-retardant textiles, it will buy valuable time for rescue and self-rescue. If it is only a small fire, covering it with a fire blanket may A fire was avoided.

From a government perspective, there are many methods that we can learn from abroad. The laws of many European and American countries stipulate that children’s clothing must meet certain flame-retardant standards. Fire blankets must be a must-have for families. Knowledge of personal protection must be regularly publicized to raise public awareness. . With mandatory regulations in place, it is more important to implement them.

In addition, the development of the domestic flame retardant industry not only requires active calls from the industry, but also requires the news media to assist us in strengthening publicity and reporting in this area to improve the public’s awareness of personal protection.

The domestic market in this area is not yet active, causing the industry to be unable to operate continuously and a virtuous cycle has not yet been formed. Only when flame-retardant products are widely used in the market can problems be discovered, solved, and entered into a process of continuous improvement and development. For enterprises, they must ensure stable product quality, ensure production capacity, and reduce costs from the perspective of formula and production efficiency, in order to support the healthy operation of themselves and the industry.

The orderly development of the industry also requires two combinations of industry, academia and research. On the one hand, it is a horizontal combination within the industry, giving full play to the scientific research advantages of universities and colleges, and jointly developing multi-functional textiles with enterprises, which should be flame retardant, anti-static, Features include splash resistance and comfortable hand feel.

On the other hand, focus on vertical integration with the chemical industry, such as the selection of flame retardants. In the process of industry-university-research, enterprises can not only work hard on modified flame-retardant fibers, but also focus on the research and development of non-combustible fibers, such as glass fiber, basalt fiber, ceramic fiber, etc. While improving the fire protection level, reasonably controlling prices and actively developing new raw materials and new products are also processes that need to be actively explored in the development of the industry.
