Shining a Light on Flammability in Textile Applications will be held September 21–22, 2016 in Cary, N.C., to address numerous topics on textile flammability.
Textile combustion can originate from electric arc, flame or a variety of other sources of heat. There are many textiles that do not contain “flame retardant” chemistries and the differences in inherent fiber and “topical” treatments need to be explained and expanded upon to be inclusive of the additional methods of engineering textiles that resist or retard combustion. This program is being developed to address the State of the “Art” or “Engineering” of this topic.
