Flame Retardant Corrosive Resistant Conductive Fabric Article And Method
September 12, 2006
A flame retardant metalized fabric article was recently patented. The article includes a polymer fabric substrate having a reverse side and an obverse side; a conductive metal layer on one side of the substrate; and a flame retardant coating intermediate the conductive coating metal layer and the polymeric substrate. The flame retardant comprises a film forming carrier and a halogenated or non-halogenated flame retardant additive uniformly distributed in the carrier. The metal layer comprises a first metal layer applied directly to the flame retardant layer, a second conductive metal layer and a third abrasion resistant surface layer.
