pinfa has produced and published a 3-minute video explaining why flame retardants are important, how they are effective, and how they act.
Flame retardants are presented as sophisticated, adapted to specific materials, and effective in preventing a fire from starting, slowing the spread of fire, delaying full fire (flashover), reducing fire intensity and reducing smoke generation. By providing a longer escape time flame retardants can help save lives and give more time for fire fighters to act. PIN FRs are presented as responding to fire safety demands in sectors where standards are the most stringent.
