Flame retardants are commonly known as an alternative to flammable materials, but what are they? Though you may think of clothing, furnishings, and first aid blankets when you hear “flame retardant”, the term actually refers to a type of chemical that stops or delays the spread of flames. These chemicals are incorporated into textiles, plastics, electronics, and even building insulation. They’re designed to form a protective shield that can withstand a certain amount of heat.
