APYROL I Saving lives with flame retardant coatings and finishes

Effective flame protection for greater safety

Technical textiles or nonwovens, which are used in many areas, e.g. in the interior of public buildings, in vehicle construction or in work safety, must have flame-retardant properties. Therefore, flame retardant products play an important role in the finishing of functional textiles.

In the form of coatings and finishes, flame retardants delay the spread of fire in the event of a fire. In an emergency, the people involved gain valuable time for extinguishing attempts or rescue measures.


With its APYROL product line, the CHT Group offers a wide range of highly effective flame retardants that can be used in many different applications:

  • In indoor textiles such as light and sun protection, upholstery back coatings, carpets, etc.
  • In mobility environments and transportation for automobiles, buses and trains, airplanes, etc.
  • For architectural and building textiles from roofing underlayment to textile roofs and facade cladding.
  • In industrial textiles and nonwovens such as filters, conveyor belts, bellows coatings, etc.
  • In the field of work safety for textiles that are designated as personal protective equipment.

In addition to functionality and effectiveness of the flame retardants used, economic efficiency and handling of these products are important factors and quality criteria. In addition, especially in technical applications, very high standards and requirements usually apply.

Not all flame retardants are the same

In addition to the classic antimony or halogen-containing products, the CHT Group offers a steadily growing share of halogen-free systems, so-called "green flame retardants".

For a successful flame retardant coating or finishing, it is often not only the right choice of flame retardant that is decisive. Questions about the intended use, the standard to be met, the structure and composition of the base material, the application quantity and the application technique must also be considered holistically.

In addition, for very special applications, custom-developed or formulated solutions are often required. In these cases, our textile experts always keep an open mind and set out to find the optimum customer solution in a creative and cooperative manner.
