Product Overview
Alexiflam FR is a flame retardant for synthetic and synthetic-blend fabrics that is applied via aqueous solutions. A halogen-free, phosphorus-based flame retardant supplied as an O/W emulsion.

Alexiflam FR is used on nylon/cotton (NyCo) fabric blends with a higher percentage of cotton.
