Coats Astra FR is twisted thread from polyester with passive fireproof properties. It is made according to the law BS EN 14878:2007 (Safety regulations of production of the nightclothes) regulating the norms of an inflammability of the materials used for production of children's pajamas, accepted by many leading companies of retail trade.
Coats Astra FR thread already proved that it provides satisfactory characteristics even in difficult conditions of distribution of a flame. The correct structure of a seam is an integral part of testing of products.
Sewing threads are only one element which influences the general inflammability of clothes and use of fireproof thread will not save the situation if fabric easily ignites. Nevertheless, it was shown that use of standard thread without fireproof characteristics can lead to the fact that seams of clothes do not take standard tests for an inflammability, even in that case when fabric is fire-resistant.

Many producers of clothes practice addition in addition of lubricant in thread to or in the course of sewing. It can be the cause of inflammability of a final product that it is necessary to warn. Coats applies carefully developed lubricant in thread, controlling amount of such lubricant that allows a thread to be sewn under normal conditions operation of the sewing machine and speed. Coats does not bear any responsibility for inflammability of a product in case during processing additional lubricants or coverings were used.
Coats Astra FR was developed for satisfaction of requirements of testing of fire resistance of ready-to-wear clothes according to norm of BS EN 14878:2007 (Safety regulations of production of nightclothes). Fire resistance in textile production depends on difficult interaction of variable parameters, and characteristics of threads and seams strongly depend on other factors, including on type of the used fabric. Has to check compliance of thread to the requirements of fire resistance at production of finished product the customer used thread. In turn the Coats company declares that it is capable to guarantee that the delivered thread will conform to requirements, BS EN 14878:2007 (Safety regulations of production of nightclothes) stated normal (in case of conducting testing with use of a method of the Coats company for seam assessment). Coats does not bear liability for negligence of the person using thread.
