Definitions for "Flame Resistant"
The characteristic of a fabric to resist ignition and to self extinguish if ignited.
The ability of a tape to withstand exposure to a flame. Flame resistant (fire-retardant self extinguishing) materials will burn when exposed to flame, but will not continue to burn after the flame is removed. Burning rate, smoke density, toxicity of fumes and melt drippings are important factors in assessing flame resistance.
To make something more difficult to catch on fire and less likely to remain on fire. Fabrics and materials are specifically designed or treated so they will not burn easily. A common fabric used to make firefighters' clothing, Nomex®, is made of flame and heat resistant fiber.
