Abstract

See full text

The present invention is directed to a fabric composed of nylon or polyester fibers and having both liquid barrier properties and fire retardant properties without sacrificing many of the desirable properties of the fabric. In particular, the present invention helps overcome many of the disadvantages associated with prior art fabrics by providing a fabric having feel and drape of a textile fabric while having good fluid barrier characteristics and fire retardant characteristics. In one embodiment, the invention is also directed to a breathable nylon or polyester fabric having liquid barrier and fire retardant properties. The present invention also provides methods of making such fabrics.
