Summary

Flame-resistant polyurethanes are a subsection of the larger polyurethane industry. These materials are polyurethanes that come in several states (flexible foams, rigid foams and liquids) that are either manufactured to be flame-resistant or that have flame-resistant additives added during the manufacturing process.

There are many end-user markets for flame-resistant (FR) polyurethanes. Construction, furniture and transportation markets use millions of tons globally of flexible foams for seating and paneling, and rigid foams for insulation and architectural pieces. FR polyurethane fiber is required protective clothing for firefighters, welders and electrical workers.

Definition

There are many terms used for products and materials and how they react to fire and heat sources. Flame resistant refers to products and materials that are inherently nonflammable. In addition, the chemical structures in the materials are fire-resistant. These are slow-burning materials and will not melt when close to a heat source. They may not be 100% nonflammable but are slow-burning and often self-extinguishing.

Flame retardant refers to products and materials that are chemically treated with varnishes or additives that are slow-burning or self-extinguishing when exposed to a heat source or flame. The original product or materials can be flammable but must be coated with a flame-retardant varnish or additive to decrease flammability.

Fireproof is another term that has the same meaning as fire-resistant (not an additive but the structure of the material). The term is typically not used when technically describing the structure of the product or additive applied, but it is used in marketing materials for general consumers. Fire resistant means the same as “flame-resistant,” but is a more common term that refers to products and materials that are inherently nonflammable.

Fire retardant is an equally common term which is the same as “flame retardant” and refers to products and materials that are chemically treated with varnishes or additives that are slow-burning. For this report, we will use the term “flame-resistant” since we will only be looking at polyurethane products that are made with chemicals so that the product is flame/fire-resistant (slow-burning), and not flame-retardant chemicals that are coating the polyurethane foams and products on the exterior. According to the Polyurethane Foam Association, more than REDACTED billion lbs. of foam are produced everyyear in the U.S. Its website states, “It is all around us in our daily lives, in our homes, vehicles, schoolsand businesses. It is the cushioning material of choice in nearly all upholstered furniture and mattress es.”
