Inherently Flame Resistant (IFR) Fabric has a permanent flame resistant quality built right into the fibers in the fabric. The resistance to flame is a fundamental (inherent) characteristic or quality of the fabric. It cannot be removed or washed out.
Oberon has redesigned & formulated its FR Denim. Its flame resistance is still inherent, but with 45% cotton, it has the look, feel, and comfort of natural cotton denims as well as the durability of synthetic fibers. Washing and bleaching cannot harm the inherently flame resistant properties. The fabric is custom designed, made and tested by Oberon.
Is FR Treated Cotton really cheaper?
For Dailywear, laundering is a most critical issue. The garment is economical only if it lasts. Most FR Treated cotton dailywear may last through only 25 to 70 washings. Oberon’s ARCPLUSTM Dailywear can last up to 200 washings or more. While inherently FR garments are more expensive, they last longer than FR Treated cotton, offsetting the cost difference.
All fibers and components used in the construction of Oberon’s ARCPLUSTM Arc Flash Dailywear are inherently flame resistant, including buttons, labels, Nomex® threads and Nomex zipper tape.
What does “inherent” mean for dailywear? It means you can wash it with no concerns of reducing the FR (Flame Resistant) properties of the garment. These FR properties are not a treatment but are built into the chemistry of the fiber. Hundreds of washings will not reduce the inherent FR properties. Flame retardant treated cotton (FRT), in contrast, must be washed carefully to avoid the use of chlorine and oxidizing bleach. This is important if home laundering is part of your PPE program because Dailywear can require 50 or more washings per year.
