Over the last 20 years, the range of scenic, props and costume materials used in entertainment and architectural design has grown dramatically. More than just canvas, muslin, velours and polyester fabrics, scenic artisans now use exotic blends of fibers, complex weaves and purely synthetic fabrics as well as woods, composites, pulped sheets, plastics, papers, cardboards and almost any other material they can find. And each one of these materials, when used on stage or in public assembly, must meet local requirements for flame retardance.
Completely reformulated to address this wide range of modern materials and to satisfy the broad spectrum of Fire Marshall regulations, Rosco is pleased to introduce six new Flamex products. Similar to the original Roscoflamex range, each of the six new flame retardants is keyed to a specific family of materials and designed for ease of use and to maximize the effective protective treatment.
These advanced new flame retardant materials have been tested and certified according to the appropriate standards by NFPA, ANSI and ASTM and have certificates of approval from the California Fire Marshall and NYC Fire Department.
Each product is easy to apply to the substrate by either brush, spray or immersion. These products are not appropriate for use on costumes or clothing where there is direct contact with skin. Flamex should not be used with Metallic paints.
