PROTECTION YOU CAN TRUST!
and are the two terms used most to distinguish between FR fabrics. The difference between engineered and inherently flame resistant fabrics relates to the process used in making the final product flame resistant and can be described as:
, like Nomex®IIIA, Teijinconnex, Lenzing FR, Kermel etc. are made using fibers that are innately flame resistant. The flame resistant properties cannot be degraded through regular use or laundering. Nomex®IIIA fabrics are made from fibers that are not flammable, from an FR polymer base; these fabrics are flame resistant from the start and do not go through a treatment process to become flame resistant. With the R&D and economies in the production the branded fibers are now complimented with more generic version of the fibers like Aramid, Modacrylic, FR-Viscose, FR-Bamboo, Lyocell etc.
Paul Morgan and Stephanie L. Kwolek in 1950s pioneered the development of heat resistant Nomex® fiber which for the long time enjoyed proven, lightweight and durable solutions for a range of applications and industries
NOMEX IIIA is a blended combination of Nomex®, Kevlar® and Anti-Static.
LENZING™ FR is a sustainably produced inherently flame-resistant cellulosic fiber based on Lenzing’s renowned Modal fiber production process. LENZING™ FR is commonly blended with other high performance fibers to produce unique protective solutions for a variety of industrial applications. LENZING™ FR fibers typically contribute both protective qualities and enhanced comfort to these fabric blends
In late 20th Century Teijin developed pathbreaking Twaron®fiber, Since then it has diversified to Teijinconex®, Technora®
PYROVATEX® CP NEW / CP-LF is a flame-retardant finish for textiles of cellulose fibers and fabric blends
PROBAN® is a quality controlled technological process that gives cotton and cotton-rich woven and knitted textiles flame retardant properties
