Flame Retardants


Bolger & O’Hearn offers a family of unique phosphorus-containing fire retardants that are suitable for durable applications to polyesters and polyester blend fabrics. These include high-phosphorus grades for pad application and formulated grades for spray-on application.


Our polymer type fire retardants find use for protecting cellulosics, synthetics, and their blends. These will impart a soft dry hand and maintain the tensile strength of the treated fabric while imparting excellent flame resistance.

Formulated FR Coatings

Bolger & O’Hearn offers specialty coatings that can be applied by knife or screen to the back of
textiles or as interlayers to improve FR characteristics.
