Showcasing stretch flame resistant textile innovations in the Middle East

Explore the latest in stretch flame resistant fabrics at Intersec 2024

04 December 2023

Our latest innovation, Flametougher 290AS Flex, represents a significant advancement in electrical arc flash protection with a composition of CORDURA® nylon 6,6 to ensure certified strength as well as EOL fibres by XLANCE® for elasticity and comfort. This innovative stretch flame resistant fabric is designed to provide enhanced safety for professionals working in environments where electrical arc flashes pose a significant risk.

Additionally, we are showcasing a range of new flame resistant products, including Flameflex 300AS, Flametuff Satin 250 AS, as well as Flameshield Satin 425 developed to achieve an impressive class 2 rating for welding protection. These products offer superior protection against flames and heat, ensuring the safety of workers in high-risk industries.

Furthermore, we are extending our range of lightweight inherent FR fabrics from the Flameban family incorporating Lenzing fibres, an eco-friendly alternative containing a cellulosic base generating moisture management properties. This blend not only enhances comfort but also provides exceptional flame resistance, making it an ideal choice for professionals seeking both protection and comfort.

Continuing our commitment to sustainability, we are exhibiting at Intersec 2024 our new Tahoe as part of our stretch workwear fabric range containing 29% REPREVE® recycled polyester. Tahoe boasts a remarkable 20% stretch due to the inclusion of 4% EOL fibres by XLANCE®. This eco-friendly workwear textile not only reduces environmental impact but also offers the flexibility and durability needed for demanding work environments. With these innovations, we continue to prioritise safety, comfort, and sustainability in our product offerings.
