All Technodeco fabrics and stretch textiles from polyester FR or Trevira CS are either made of permanent flame resistant fibers or manufactured with a special FR finish and retain even after several washes their flame retardancy. These items can be washed at 40° C and can be tumble dried at low heat. Furthermore, these textiles are tested regularly in respect of wash shrinkage and this is below 1.5%.
Please note that all cotton fabric for Theater, Stage, Exhibition & Event should not be washed. Once the fabric is in contact with water, the flame retardancy of the fabric will dissipate over time. Even if the flame retardancy after washing is no longer relevant, the cotton fabric has not been produced to have low shrinkage and is likely to significantly shrink by washing.
