What flame retardants and chemicals are used in Clek seats?

Car seats are required to meet the most stringent automotive fire-safety standards.

As part of Clek’s ongoing commitment to continuously improve its environmental profile, we are sourcing materials that use non-halogenated flame retardants or, where possible, alternative materials that don’t use any known flame retardants, while still complying with fire-safety standards.

Chemical testing is conducted by accredited third party labs on major components and results show that:

  • Our Standard C-Zero Plus and Tailored C-Zero Plus fabrics are GREENGUARD Gold Certified, meaning they meet stringent chemical emissions requirements, and have been screened for various volatile organic compounds, and, along with the foam laminated to the backside of the fabric, are free from halogenated (brominated and chlorinated) flame retardants, while still meeting the federally-required automotive fire-safety standards.
  • The fabrics used on our mammoth models are made of OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified 100% Merino wool and, along with the foam laminated to the backside of the fabric, are free of any added known flame retardants, while still meeting the federally-required automotive fire-safety standards.
  • The other major components (foam, harnesses, plastics) tested are free of any added known flame retardants, while still meeting the federally-required automotive fire-safety standards.

The chemical screening is based on known flame retardant chemical compounds, as well as general screening for halogens, phosphorous and other chemicals used in flame retardants, like antimony. The results show that none are detected in concentrations that would indicate the use of such flame retardants.
