Avocet manufactures a range of high performance, textile flame retardant chemicals marketed under the name CETAFLAM®. They can be applied during the dyeing process, by backcoating or padding to a wide range of textile fibres and their blends. Some are also OEKO-TEX® accredited "active chemical products".

Our philosophy is to innovate and develop products which have high flame retardant performance, low environmental impact, low energy use and are reliable.

CETAFLAM® DB SERIES - DYEBATH APPLICABLE

These unique formulations are capable of achieving high specification flame retardant properties. On polyester fibres and fabrics, application is during the high temperature dyeing process and for wool or wool/polyamide blends as a dyebath aftertreatment.

Our research and development team have now produced a new generation of these products which have major environmental advantages, offering faster processing and reduced energy utilisation. This enables the production of sustainable textiles.

CETAFLAM® BC SERIES - BACKCOATING

For application to all fibres and fabric constructions the basic formulations can be designed to meet individual customer requirements. These bespoke products have modified properties which include seam slippage, water/dry clean resistance, weldability and soft handle.

Whilst all these products can be applied on conventional machinery we will adjust formulations to perform on specific machines and fabrics. Bespoke formulations enable users to achieve cost reductions through the use of low temperature curing binders. Many of the Non-halogen compounds enable the user to meet the most demanding levels of environmental sustainability and brand imposed restricted substance lists.

CETAFLAM® PD SERIES - PADDING

For application by padding selected formulations produce durable, semi and non-durable flame retardancy effects on most fibre/fabric constructions.

Products include reactive finishes capable of producing multi-wash and dry cleaning durability on cotton, polyester and their blends.

Highly efficient salt based products offer semi-durable and non-durable flame retardant finishes all of which are dry cleanable. Spray techniques can also be used to apply some of the padding products.

CETAFLAM® - ADDITIVES

These basic flame retardant chemicals offer synergistic properties when used in combination with other flame retardants, including DBDPE (deca bromo diphenyl ethane) , Sb2O3 (antimony trioxide) or APP (ammonium polyphosphate).
