Fire retardant spray on treatment for drapes, furniture, artificial flowers, carpets and wall coverings with Fabric Safe, gives excellent protection against ignition, flame spread and afterglow. It inhibits ignition of the treated material and restricts the char to the immediate area exposed to flame. Fabric Safe is a water-based, clear, odorless and non-toxic fire retardant spray. All surfaces to be treated must be clean. Due to the vast variety of textiles and fabrics, it is important to check for color fastness. This is done by applying a small amount of Fabric Safe fire retardant to an obscure area and letting it dry ( a hair dryer will aid in drying). Apply Fabric Safe fire retardant as it comes from the container.
DO NOT DILUTE OR MIX FABRIC SAFE WITH ANY OTHER PRODUCTS.
The coverage rate of Fabric Safe is 300 to 400 square feet per gallon depending on the type and weight of the material being treated. Fabric Safe 1 is applied with a mist applicator. All treated textiles/fabrics lose some of their fire retardant qualities after deep cleaning, therefore re-treatment with Fabric Safe 1 is necessary to maintain maximum fire retardancy.
