Other fabrics, such as cotton, are naturally resistant to flames and can be treated with specialist chemicals to boost their heat resistance and their protective qualities.

What is difference between flame resistant and flame retardant?

Flame resistant fabrics are made from materials that are inherently nonflammable – the materials have flame resistance built into their chemical structures. Flame retardant fabrics are chemically treated to be slow burning or self-extinguishing when exposed to an open flame.
