Fabrics built for Fire Retardant
Aramid fabrics have good chemical resistance and can be used in various aggressive environments. They are used for manufacturing of protective clothing for firefighters, electric workers and military.
Aramid fabrics are made of blended aramid fibers in composition of 93% Meta-Aramid, 5% Para-Aramid, 2% Antistatic. Inherent thermal, flame and electric arc protection cannot be washed away. This property of aramid fibers is built into their chemical structure. Garments made with aramid fabrics are not flammable. When exposed to flame, the aramid fiber swells and becomes thicker, forming a protective barrier between the heat source and the skin. This protective barrier stays supple until it cools down, giving the wearer vital extra seconds of protection to escape.
