Maintenance

You are advised to carefully follow the instructions below (labelled in accordance with international standard UNI EN ISO 3758: 2005):

Washing temperature till 90°C. Washing temperature must be set based on fabric composition and using a normal detergent.

IMPORTANT: Use ammonium sulphate instead of normal softener. 

Washing temperature 90°C. Professional gentle washing with a normal detergent. Hydrogen peroxide, ammonia and sodium hypochlorite is allowed.

IMPORTANT: Use ammonium sulphate in last rinse.

Tumble dry in low temperature
Iron at medium temperatures.
Professional dry cleaning, all solvents.
BEST METHODS
 
Washing temperature from 40 ° C to 90°C.

Washing with deionised or distilled water and normal liquid detergent. The use of hydrogen peroxide and ammonia and sodium hypochlorite is allowed. Refer always on labelling garment.

Washing with normal water is possible but it is necessary to add ammonium sulphate in place of softener, ammonium sulphate in last rinse help to eliminate all mineral salts that stay on the fibre.

Fireproof fabrics should be washed in water without salts. Water and detergent contains mineral salts forming insoluble deposits in the fabric which can act as fuel if exposed to the flame. It is possible to remove these salts only from COEX fabrics using ammonium sulphate instead of softener.
 
Use 120 gr of solid ammonium sulphate in a normal washing machine or 25 gr/L in a professional washing machine in last step.

For soaking method, use 25 gr/L of  ammonium sulphate and 1 portion of softener, spin-dry.

FAQs

COEX furnishing is constructed from flame resistant fabrics and components built to meet the rigorous requirements specified by major protection agencies. COEX fabrics are designed to be fire-proof, reducing the severity of burn injuries.

What happen if the fabrics is STAINED or SOILED?
If your COEX fabric become stained or soiled and they have not been completely removed from the fabric, please be aware that these substances can compromise the fire-proof property of the fabric.
 
How can I repair the FABRICS or make a good MAINTENANCE?
For information regarding the repair and maintenance of flame-resistant fabrics please see UNI EN ISO 6330:2012 (domestic washing maintenance), the BS 5651:1989 (domestic washing maintenance) the UNI EN ISO 10528 (industrial washing maintenance)and the UNI EN ISO 3175 (dry cleaning). 
 
How long is a fireproof FABRIC LIFE?
When laundered by recommended procedures durable fireproof fabrics are guaranteed to be flame-resistant for the useful life of the fabric. Fabric life will vary depending on laundering conditions.
 
What are the correct PROCESSING / CLEANING of this fabrics?
COEX fabrics can be home laundered – following care instructions. But it is recommended that you sort and wash separately from other fabrics to prevent contamination with other possible flammable fibres.
 
You can use your normal laundry detergent but be sure it does NOT contain fabric softener.  Fabric softener can coat the fabric making it no longer flame resistant.  Fabric softener can also act as fuel in the event of a fire.  Bleach or Hydrogen Peroxide are allowed. See fabric labelling instruction before.
 
Use deionised water is suggested for home laundering flame resistant fabrics. Normal water can leave residue on fabrics compromising flame resistance. To avoid this, use ammonium sulphate instead of softener to eliminate salts residuals.
 
Stream or Dry Iron fabrics if needed at the temperature on care label.
 
Dry Cleaning is recommended to remove stains.
