The aim of this research work was to develop flame retardant gloves and describes the performance requirement as well as the design of specialized fabric to provide protection against thermal/flame hazards.Fabric flammability is affected by various factors such as Fibre composition, fabric construction, oxygen concentration and the environmental conditions (moisture content, heat, air flow), but the effects of finishing material fabrics cannot be overlooked. FR properties of 100 % knitted cellulose materials and their blends with Modacrylic fibres and Nomex were investigated in this paper. In order to design an optimal blending ratio different blend ratios were used. The flame behavior and thermal stability of knitted fabric were evaluated with different tests.
