Power of Modacrylic
Incorporate modacrylic in your personal protective equipment (PPE) to make them comfortable, durable & lightweight.
Don't miss out on modacrylic to boost your business
Modacrylic is a trending fiber in protective clothing & textiles. It is versatile and offers permanent FR protection. Highly compatible with other materials. It doesn’t lose FR properties after blending with other non-FR fibers.
Fabric performance and function can be improved by the incorporation of Nomex (aramid), Lyocell, Lenzing FR, and other high-performance fibers.
Comfort FR Solution for your daily protective wear
Wide range of flame retardant fabric developed based on modacrylic
What is Modacrylic?
Modacrylic is a synthetic copolymer, which is modified from acrylic. It’s composed of less than 85% synthetic polymer and at least 35% acrylonitriles. The first modacrylic fiber was introduced in 1949. Although many later followers produced, only two major players on the market, which are still in production nowadays. Fushun in China, and Kanekaron in Japan.
Mod-Acrylic, as the name implies, it’s modified acrylic, just added with a certain amount of polymers containing flame retardant element, its FR properties are naturally part of the copolymer backbone. The fabric made from modacrylic fiber has built-in flame retardancy, can never be worn away or washed out.
Inherent flame retardant, no melt, no drip
Touch soft, resilient, non-allergenic, Free heavy metal
Superior resistance to chemicals and solvents
Easy processing, dyed easily, high-level color fastness
Various applications for industry and consumer
How it works?
As known to all, The Fire Triangle – Fuel, Oxygen, and Ignition Temperature are three elements necessary for combustion. No combustion can occur without all three of these essentials.
- When modacrylic blends contact to a heat source and get burning, the inert gas is released, it forces the oxygen out of the burning surface, slowing the combusting process;
- The flaming modacrylic blends will be no melting and carbonized with no dripping. Therefore, no debris sticking to the skin, and a protection barrier formed, which keeps the air out, to stop spreading the flame once the ignition source removed.
