NewsWatch featured Alexium as part of its monthly Biz Report, which takes a look small, medium, and large businesses making an impact in their industry. Andrew Tropeano, the host of NewsWatch and business expert, conducted the business review and shared with viewers how they make flame-retardant finishes.
For decades in the commercial and military sectors, textiles have been made flame-retardant using one of two means: chemistries that are harmful to the human body and the environment, or expensive fibers that are naturally flame-retardant. In the last ten years, a combination of price pressures, increased scientific scrutiny and government legislation have forced consumers to abandon these solutions in search of something new.
A company called Alexium is using cutting-edge, patented technology alongside decades of industry experience to create low-cost, durable, environmentally friendly, non-toxic flame retardant finishes for nearly any textile.
Alexium Chairman Gavin Rezos said, “The flame retardant is unique in that it’s 100 percent environmentally friendly; it can treat all fabrics; it’s military grade, so it meets commercial requirements easily; it passes the tests; and in particular, it can treat nylon which melts and drips at low temperatures, which no one else can do; and it’s patented.”
