Alexium Debuts BACTRON™ And OMNITRON™ Treatments

Alexium International Group Ltd., Australia and Greer, S.C., now offers two flame-retardant (FR) treatments for use on cotton and synthetic/cotton upholstery and furnishings fabrics: BACTRON™ fabric back-coating is applied to one side of the fabric; and OMNITRON™ topical treatment package is impregnated into the fabric.

Alexium reports the treatments are easily applied using traditional textile processing equipment and are compatible with antimicrobials, stain repellents and other finishing agents. They also are free of halogen, formaldehyde and heavy metals; will not melt or drip and are self-extinguishing; are durable and launderable; do not significantly alter a fabric’s appearance and/or hand; and meet international FR standards.
