The core of effective FR/AR garments is the FR fabric. FR fabric, when effectively manufactured, either snuffs out a flame or resists breaking down when exposed to flames or intense heat. While multiple FR fabric technologies enable an FR garment to self-extinguish when a thermal source, or flame, is removed, there are differences in how the fabrics are engineered. These differences are helpful to understand so you can specify which FR/AR fabrics meet your PPE program needs.
