Avocet polyester flame retardant gets Oeko-Tex certification

UK dye manufacturer Avocet Dye & Chemical Co Ltd has received Oeko-Tex accreditation for its CetaFlam PDP and PDP 30% polyester flame retardants.

UK dye manufacturer Avocet Dye & Chemical Co Ltd has received Oeko-Tex accreditation for its CetaFlam PDP and PDP 30% polyester flame retardants.

Their inclusion on the list of active chemical products means they can be used when producing Oeko-Tex certified articles for all Classes (I-IV).

“We have continued to invest heavily in our flame retardant products so that our customers can achieve durable flame retardant finishes on polyester fabrics which will met the strictest environmental requirements,” says Avocet’s managing director, Michael Lever. “Now our customers have another option for meeting the Oekotex 100 requirements across all product Classes I – IV.”

Avocet says the development will enable the company to further extend the reach of CetaFlam PDP and PDP 30% products, which already have a proven track record in the automotive, home textiles and mass transit sectors, as they are now available for use in the apparel sector.”

The flame retardant finishes produced by application of either CetaFlam PDP or PDP 30% are resistant to 50 washes at 60oC. These products complement CetaFlam DB9 durable exhaustion system for polyester, which has been on the Oekotex listings since May 2014.
