Even the flame retardant back-coatings used today need to be dramatically improved to prevent the ignition of the foam underneath the fabric . The new material must have two main functions:
• fire retardant properties: decrease the ignition time (not easy to ignite the materials)
• flame resistant properties: able to stop the propagation of flame, after ignition
Currently, there is no textile product able in the same time, to achieve these two properties.
