TexFRon® 4001 has an optimal melting range enabling better penetration of the finish during the coating process onto the fabric and excellent durability.
The FR cannot be extracted from the fabric, even at the boil.
It also minimizes the whitening effect often observed with traditional FR systems.

TexFRon® 4001 may be applied by a variety of application techniques including spray, pad, print, coat, foam and brush.
It is most suitable for polyester, acrylic blends, nylon, polypropylene blends and cotton/ polyester blend fabrics.
