Reliance Industries is exclusively using FRX’s polyphosphonate PIN flame retardant in Recron® FS for fire safe, sustainable performance polyester fibres. Reliance Industries (over 100 billion US$ group revenues), produce c. 3.5 Mt fibres and yarns annually and are probably the world’s biggest producer of polyester staple fibre and filament yarns. The company’s fire safe polyesters Recron FS use polymer phosphorus PIN flame retardant, which improves polyester textile tenacity (strength) and is compatible with 90% recycled polyester feedstock. The PIN FR is approved in Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for textile applications, as well as Green Screen Bench Mark 3, ChemForward, TCO. Depending on the amount of polymeric PIN FR blended with the polyester, 0.7 to 2.5 % phosphorus can be incorporated, enabling achievement of different customer fire safety specifications.
