Firebloc II Fire Retardant Leather
Firebloc II builds on the success of previous fire retardant treatments, using advanced polymer chemistry to penetrate deeper into the fibre structure to deliver more effective resistance and to inhibit the spread of fire for longer.
This revolutionary treatment not only improves the fire retardant qualities of the leather, it does so without any impact on the characteristics of the original leather.
Firebloc II can also be combined with complementary Pittards technologies such as CIG camouflage leathers or enhanced grip textures and can be used on thinner leathers (performs to EN 407 6.3 down to 0.65mm)
Additional benefits of Firebloc II are water, oil and stain resistance, making it versatile across a range of end uses.
