Frequently Asked Questions
FR Garment Care + Washing
Q: How long does the flame resistance protection in DRIFIRE garments last?
A: FR protection in all DRIFIRE products will never wash out or wear out. That’s because flame resistance is inherent in the fibers, as opposed to treated fabrics where protection can wash or wear out over time. This also makes the garments lighter in weight.
Q: Do added logos and embellishments need to be FR?
A: ASTM F1506 allows non-FR trim and logos as long as their size, location and design do not increase the potential extent of an injury. Review NFPA 70E 130.7(C)(13)(d).
Q: How should I wash my DRIFIRE garments?
A: See DRIFIRE care and washing instructions.
Q: I’ve got a stain. What will help remove it?
A: No different than standard wash detergents and laundering techniques. Be sure to launder as soon as possible, as the longer a stain sets, the more difficult it may be to remove.
Q:Can I use insect repellent on DRIFIRE fabric?
A: It is not recommended, as some insect repellents are flammable, offsetting some of the effectiveness of our FR technology.
Q: Do DRIFIRE garments’ colors fade?
A: DRIFIRE fabric has extremely good color retention—the color of the inherent FR fibers DRIFIRE uses does last longer than that of cotton—but the color of any fabric will eventually fade over time.
