Fire retardant blanket fabrics. First, I'm just gonna show you our know Finnish army does this? Has zero fire retardant finished? It's cotton! It's gonna catch on fire. I just wanted to show the difference of an on finish compared to the fire retardant fabric, so you can see the chart charged, the black part it's spreading really quickly, starting to catch on fire and a little flame, and so we blow that house fire so to meet the NFPA 701 test and after flame of fewer than two seconds and a char length of less than six and a half inches, and it does not continue to flame after reaching the floor of the test.
So you can see this is just charring a little bit, I'm holding the flame up in the standard test. They actually hold the flame for 12 seconds, so you can see the charred the flames held against that it's gonna char, but it's not gonna go into flames and so immediately when you take it away, it just stops, which is why that they say that It's self-extinguishing what it's supposed to do. So, let's just a look at this earning, you can actually see the little fibers here, but that's what you know normal fabric. Does it doesn't kind of the finish.
So this is our 18-ounce final fire retardant material. We have it in two different colors it meets the same NFPA 704 and standards, it does the same thing, work chars and then you take the flame away and it immediately self-extinguishes, that's not going in there. Please, like I said we have a few different colors and next is our newest fabric that we have it's our 12 ounce Duva teen. It's a blackout cloth for most of its applications and it is absolutely crucial that it requires retardant not being used on stage as a huge backdrop.
