This is a class 0 synthetic fire retardant fabric; with this specification it can resist a fire from spreading, particularly over the outer walls of high-rise buildings.
It is a plain white 100% Polyester fabric, and is also a print base fabric, meaning you can digitally print directly onto this material using a heat press (if your design has been printed off a dye sublimation printer). Another feature is that it is classed as an inherent flame-retardant fabric, which is where it hasn't had any resistant treatments added to it as it is naturally fire retardant from the way it is structured.
With its digital printing properties you can use it for:
- Promotional wear
- Corporate branding
- Visual Communication
- Retail graphics
As well as digital printing, this fabric can be useful in many different ways due to its fire retardant properties such as:
Ariel is an ideal upholstery soft touch fabric great for applications like curtains, roman blinds, furnishings
- Stage sets
- Exhibition stands
- School halls, colleges, universities
- Industrial work wear
- Uniforms for fire fighters, air force pilots
- Tents and parachute fabric
- Professional motor racing apparel
It is ideal to use non-flammable fabrics like this one in a building as it:
- Slows down the flame, or even causes the fire to self-extinguish, therefore limiting the spread
- Minimises the build up of heat which again will prevent the fire rapidly developing
If holding an exhibition, or a show, this will increase the safety of the event if fire retardant fabrics are used. This applies in the same way to event holders if tents are needed; make a clever choice and kit yourself out with fire retardant fabrics!
For fire fighters, air force pilots, and other types of trade, workwear can be even safer if made from a material like this one with these qualities. Not only this, but you can also print designs onto this fabric or logos so this has actually got two special qualities!
