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.
