Q: What does it mean if a fabric is NDFR?

 A: NDFR stands for Non Durably Flame Retarded. These fabrics are chemically treated with a water soluble retarding solution. All fabrics classed as NDFR will withstand at least 5 water free dry cleaning cycles without effecting retardancy. If these fabrics are wetted in any way, it is essential to retreat the fabric to meet flammability requirements.
