XM-6015 has obtained the EN 20471 and EN 469 certificate


The new fire-resistant heat transfer tape XM-6015 has been developed by XM Silverline. Designed for High Visibility of people working at the risk of fire. It is best used for FR-rainwear (jacket, pants etc) or FR-knitwear (polo, sweatshirt, hoodie etc), where stitching is not allowed.

This tape is easy to apply to FR fabric. Use heat press or iron to apply this FR-tape to your FR-clothing (press firmly (40 psi) for 20 sec at ≈ 150°C).

In June 2016 this tape has obtained the certificate EN ISO 20471:2013 and EN 469:2005.

The tests were performed by AITEX laboratory, Spain. All the results confirmed extra quality and high performance of the new Flame Retardant tape XM-6015.

EN 20471 tests:

  • Photometric performance after 5000 Abrasion cycles – PASS (Ra=504),
  • Photometric performance after 7500 Flexing cycles – PASS (Ra=511),
  • Photometric performance after Folding at cold temperature at -20°C – PASS (Ra=510),
  • Photometric performance after Climatic ageing – PASS (Ra=498),
  • Photometric performance after Influence of rainfall – PASS (Ra>500).
  • We have successfully passed the test for the Photometric performance after 50 washing cycles – PASS.

EN 469 tests:

  • Heat Resistance – PASS (Ra=503),
  • Limited Flame Spread – new material – PASS,
  • Limited Flame Spread – after washing 50 cycles, 60°C & low-heat tumble dry – PASS.
  • We have successfully passed the test for the “Limited flame spread”, after 50 wash cycles at a temperature of 60°C and achieved performance level according to EN 469:2005+AC:2006 annex B.3.2 – PASS.

This excellent performance, we have achieved thanks to the extensive experience in the design and manufacturing of reflective fabric for high visibility clothing.
