7 fr-fabrics tested for flame resistance after 100 industrial washes (ISO 15797)

In 2022-2023, fr-fabrics XM FireLine™ have been tested for 100 industrial washes.

The testing was done in Aitex lab (Spain) to confirm that our Flame Retardant fabrics keep FR properties after a hundred wash cycles.

We have chosen 7 (seven) most popular fr-fabrics from our range and washed them 100 times at 75°C by ISO 15797 and tested for Vertical burn test ISO 15025.

All seven fr-fabrics have successfully passed the test.

XM FireLine™ fabrics are made with durable FR treatment, that keep flame resistance during the whole life cycle of fr-clothing. Our fr-fabrics are used in 51 countries for fr-clothing of Oil and Gas workers, Utility workers, Welders and others. To guarantee the quality of our fr-fabrics and durability of their FR properties, we regularly make such a testing for a hundred washes. The same testing we did in 2018 and as 4 years have already passed we made an update.

Following fr-fabrics have been tested:

All tested fr-fabrics have kept Flame Resistance properties after 100 (one hundred) industrial wash cycles at 75°C, ISO 15797. Washing has been performed at 75°C as per ISO 15797 industrial wash standard. After that, the fr-fabrics have been tested for Edge ignition (Method A) and for Surface ignition (Method B) by Vertical burn test ISO 15025. ISO 15025 is a test method what is used as a part of EN ISO 11612 and EN ISO 11611 standards for Protective clothing against Heat and Flame.

Flame resistance properties of tested fr-fabrics are complied to the requirements of the standard. No flaming to top or side edge of the fabric occurs, as well as no post after-flame or after-glow, which is perfectly met the norm EN ISO 11612 (as per ISO 15025).
