Modacrylic fiber, Kanecaron® / Protex® is a performance fiber that has the characteristics of high flame retardancy (FR).
Fires often occur at night. To minimize the damage caused by fire, FR bedding and mattresses are critically important.
Kanecaron/Protex is inherently flame retardant and its char forming character works as a barrier to prevent fire from moving into the foam and batting.
The char barrier effect will depend on the type of FR materials used, their blending, thickness and weight of the barrier system used.
