Here we try to discuss, explain or just argue but most of all we want to inform.

This section will change from trying to define answers to questions to making a space where we can ensure Good Science is made welcome and Bad Science is put into its place. It will , just like our Forum meetings, offer  opportunity for explanation at the scientific, technological or just plain common sense level that reflects the nature of the textile industry.

Many of the principles behind the way we work can be set down in a few short words but sometimes the subject is just too much to deal with in a small bite size piece so we will also develop a collection of pieces written by contributors where they are allowed to dispense with the restriction of just a few words.

It is intended that a ‘Peer review’ system should be applied but we must also recognise that if you don’t understand the text then perhaps we must try harder and that could start with your comments. Please submit comments via the forms on the definitions them selves or via the contact us page

This section of the site will be based on STUART.

Science, Technology, Understanding and Reasoned Thinking.

Too often things are said or attributed to subjects where the use of selective data or limited context gives the wrong impression. Sometimes we see 2 ideas joined together to create something far more serious by simple association. The aim to create ‘Alarm”.

We shall try to replicate the basis of our Forum meetings here on the web page in a different type of Forum. The objective will remain the same.

The commitment to ensure all we do is grounded in sustainable scientific fact also remains the same.

Flame retardants are chemicals

Flame retardants are chemicals and working with them must be based on the knowledge and understanding to ensure there are no consequences for the workers who handle them, those in the supply chain who handle treated textiles and eventually the consumer who will use the final articles. The definitions will try to explain what is important and how things are done.
