Fire retardant capability is one of the criteria that investors in many industries in developed countries is the most concerned about (hotels, hospitals, theaters, etc.).

KYMDAN mattresses are fire retardant (i.e. they do not trigger the flame, in the other word; KYMDAN is not the source of fire. However, KYMDAN mattresses can be burnt under extremely high temperature).

Fire retardant capability of KYMDAN mattresses presents as follows:

  • Non-flammable to irons that are left on; as seen through our test where an iron was left on the mattress at 295oC/563oF for 60 minutes.
  • Non-flammable to burning red hot charcoal; as seen through our test where a burning hot charcoal with a temperature of 1000oC/1832oF was left on the mattress for seven minutes.
  • Non-flammable to welding sparks. The high temperature metal particles in welding sparks will not cause the mattress to ignite. This was seen in tests conducted where welding was performed continuously for 2 minutes; using a welding machine with an amperage of 155A; and at a distance of 10cm/3.9inches from the mattress.
  • Does not ignite or cause rapid spreading of fire like other materials (e.g wool, cotton etc.) when torched with fire.

Thanks to their open foam structure, KYMDAN mattresses quickly absorb water to help extinguish the fire.

This video clip, which is performed by Bureau Veritas in their US Laboratory, shows a KYMDAN mattress being tested for fire retardance by directly torching the mattress.
Passing the test, KYMDAN mattresses meet US 16 CFR 1633 fire retardant standard.
