Zhejiang Province introduces fire-retardant fabric for cars

Apr '08
Xingchao Group has finally managed to develop fire-retardant terylene fabric for usage in cars.

Observation made from an experiment shows that fire goes out after an unsuccessful effort to burn a piece of terylene fabric. This encouraged the company to undertake research and development for introducing a fire-defensive raw material for commercial application.

This fabric makes extensive use of nanometer additive which has a spectacular quality of effectively fighting spreading fire and prevent its occurrence through static force.

Initially, China had to import this very expensive chemical additive for the production of fire-retardant fabric.

In 2003, the Government of China assigned Zhejiang Sci-Tech University and Xingchao Group the with the project of research and development for nanometer additive.

The University proved successful at its research studies and presently, the country produces about one million meters of terylene fabric annually and an investment of over 40 million yuan will be made to further improve the production capacity of the raw material.
