List of fire-retardant materials

A fire retardant material is one that is designed to resist burning and withstand heat. It is used in the bunker gear worn by firefighters to protect them from the flames in a burning building. Most auto racing drivers also wear fire-retardant materials in case their car catches fire. Fire-retardant materials are designed to burn slowly, in contrast to fire-resistant materials, which are designed not to burn at all.
