Our Exolit® VF line for viscose fibers

A PERFECT FIT FOR
FLAME-RESISTANT CLOTHING

Ensuring safety and comfort
IN THE HEAT OF ACTION

In safety and protective clothing, both fire resistance and fatigue-reducing wearing comfort can save lives. Tailored for use in viscose fibers, our halogen-free Exolit® VF flame retardants help to enhance the safety, comfort and sustainability of flame-resistant apparel.

Non-halogenated flame retardants for viscose / rayon fibers

Flame-resistant viscose fibers – often referred to as FR viscose or FR rayon – are widely used to enhance the safety and comfort of firefighter suits and other protective wear. Our Exolit® VF line offers two phosphorus-based solutions specially designed for the viscose process and helping to meet customer’s high performance expectations for FR fabrics and blends.

Exolit® 5060 PK comes as wet press cake. Exolit® 5060 DP is a fine aqueous dispersion ready to be added to the spinning mass. Both can provide lasting fire retardancy without affecting processing and combine exceptional wash fastness with high wearing comfort. Exolit® 5060 PK also carries our EcoTain® label for sustainability excellence.

ADVANCED FIRE PROTECTION WITH OUR EXOLIT® VF LINE

  • Exolit® 5060 PK

    Clariant´s Exolit 5060 PK is an organic non-halogenated phosphorus flame retardant, especially designed for incorporation into viscose fibres. It is supplied as a wet presscake of 2,2'-oxybis [5,5-dimethyl-1,3,2-dioxaphosphorinane]-2,2'-disulfide. more

  • Exolit® 5060 DP

    Exolit 5060 DP is a finely dispersed aqueous dispersion which is ideally suitable for incorporation into the viscose spinning mass. The active ingredient Exolit 5060 DP is an organic, non-halogenated phosphorus compound. Exolit 5060 DP significantly reduces the flammability of the finished fibres.The effect is highly permanent and does not affect spinning and subsequent processing or finishing steps of the fibres. The level of active substance (Exolit 5060 DP) incorporated in the fibres determines the flammability, measured by the Limited Oxygen Index (LOI). more
