Inhibit helps make these everyday products better.

Proof in the Science

How Inhibit Works

Solid Material

Solid materials such as a polymer consisting of long-scale molecules are heated.


Heat causes temperatures to rise to the polymer decomposition point.

Flammable Gases

Flammable gases are released as reaction breaks down the polymer into short-chain and smaller molecules.

Released Gases

Released gases mix with oxygen in the air encouraging further reaction, combustion, and decomposition until the material consumes itself.

Disclaimer: Fabric construction, finishing, and processing have a significant impact on the final product ability to pass test. Fabrics made with Inhibit® yarns have been shown to pass a wide range of flammability tests: NFPA 701-2004; BFD 9-1; IMO A.688 (17)5.5.1&2; IMO A.652 (16)8.2&.3; FMVSS 302; ATSM E84; Cal 117E CFR 1610. All fibers sold as Inhibit flame resistant or retardant (FR) are warranted only to contain no less than 2000 parts per million Phosphorous. Unifi makes no performance claims of flame retardancy or flame resistance based upon any standard, whether governmental, industry or otherwise. Unifi specifically disclaims any such performance claims. All purchasers of Inhibit yarns must sign the Unifi Disclaimer and Acknowledgement form before purchasing any Inhibit yarns.
