Lenzing presents flame-resistant fiber at Techtextil

At Techtextil in Frankfurt Lenzing is presenting a new flame-resistant fiber especially for use in upholstery fabrics in public transportation vehicles.

The guidelines which apply to public transportation vehicles are particularly strict. The fabric and materials used in these applications have to satisfy the safety standards. With a newly developed Lenzing FR fiber, these satisfy all the safety standards for public safety.

The advantage of a safety fiber in public transportation is that Lenzing FR is made from beechwood and is endowed with all of the positive properties this natural fiber has to offer. The seating “climate” remains excellent even over longer distances since the good breathing properties of the fiber take effect here.

The special thing about Lenzing FR or the “divan fiber” is that, unlike conventional protection fibers, it does not melt, drip or afterglow. The latter properties represent an enormous risk for passengers. Another important safety aspect is that the new flame-resistant fiber delivers a lower rate of toxicity and flue gas density in the event of a fire.

The “divan fiber” is particularly well suited for use in blends with wool. Both fibers complement each other superbly. Resistance to fading and excellent pilling performance coupled with durability make upholstery fabrics a pleasure to sit on. As a result of using the Lenzing FR “divan fiber”, treating wool with additional, ecologically harmful flame-retardant agents is not necessary – another production advantage!

The new specialty fiber can be used in various transportation vehicles. Wherever safety and comfort are in demand, Lenzing FR is the answer whether in maritime or rail transportation, air transportation, subways or in public spaces such as cinemas and theatres.
