Fire Retardant Solutions for Automatic

Explore Fire Retardant Solutions for Fabrics in the Automotive and Transportation Industries

In the automotive and transport industry, safety is paramount. One of the critical aspects of ensuring safety is the use of fire-retardant solutions for fabrics. Nanoflam has many years’ experiences in this area  our traditional Bromine/Halogen systems were dominant for many years. Today we have risen to the challenge, and with our “Performance today without compromising our tomorrows” mantra our focus is on Halogen free FR solutions.

Application Areas

These materials are used in various applications, from the upholstery in cars to the seats in buses, trains, and planes. The goal is to prevent the ignition and spread of fire, providing passengers with valuable time to evacuate in the event of an emergency.

The development of fire-retardant solutions for fabrics has evolved significantly over the years. Today, companies like Nanoflam specialize in water-based chemicals for the textile industry, offering bespoke solutions that meet rigorous safety standards such as the FMVSS 302 FR test for automotive seating.


The methods for imparting flame retardancy to fabrics include Foam coating, an area where Nanoflam Excels, and finishing methods where Nanoflam can guide you on the best solution for your application and fabric choice. These advancements reflect the industry's commitment to safety without compromising on quality or performance.


There is also new lamination solution about to be launched very soon the greater sustainability requirements demanded by major car companies.

These solutions are not only effective in preventing fires but also maintain the soft handle, low formaldehyde, and low fogging performance required for comfort and health standards.

Specification of Fire Retardant Fabrics

For mass transportation, products have been developed to meet the vertical flame test requirements of the new fire test legislation (ECE 118.02) introduced in 2020 for passenger vehicles and trucks.

These products also ensure air permeability and can be included in the OEKO-TEX approved active products list of flame retardancy, indicating a commitment to environmental standards.

In the aviation and marine industries, the requirements are even more stringent. Companies like Nanoflam have risen to the challenge, producing materials that meet the flame retardancy requirements of textiles used in aircraft (FAR 25.853) and marine vessels (IMO parts 5,7,8, and 9).

Fire Resistant Solutions for Fabrics - Conclusion

As the industry continues to grow and evolve, the development of fire-retardant solutions for fabrics remains a top priority. It is a field that combines innovation with responsibility, aiming to protect lives while meeting the demands of modern transportation.
