TenCate Gemini XTL

 

TenCate Gemini™ XTL delivers the latest in protection. A lightweight fabric that features PBI® fiber, TenCate Gemini™ XTL gives you the freedom you need to move freely and work efficiently without compromising protection.

 

Using advanced engineering, scientists at TenCate designed Gemini™ XTL to maximize the added strength of the PBI® fiber.

 

 

 PBI Gold


Protective clothing made with PBI flame resistant fibers withstands the increasing dangers associated with firefighting, arc flash, and flash fire. PBI Gold fabrics blend 40% thermal resistant PBI fibers with 60% high-strength aramid fiber, resulting in the ultimate high-technology fabric for thermal protection, comfort and durability. 



The fabric does not shrink, become brittle, or break open under extreme heat and flame exposure, providing firefighters and industrial workers with superior protection. PBI Gold meets or exceeds every NFPA and EN 469 requirement. For more than 20 years, PBI Gold has lived up to its name, earning a reputation as the world's preferred choice for flame protection.

 




 

Nomex 3D


Nomex 3D utilises the excellent wear characteristics inherent in the Nomex IIIA fibre blend and adds a unique 3-dimensional construction. By creating extra volume in the back of the fabric more insulating air is trapped delivering measurable improvements in thermal protection. 

 

Nomex is an aramid fibre manufactured by DuPont. Nomex is inherently flame-resistant and this property cannot be degraded by laundering. Nomex is unaffected by most acids, except for some strength loss after long exposure to hydrochloric, nitric and sulphuric. It has generally good resistance to alkalis. Nomex has excellent resistance to mildew, aging and abrasion.


For clothing applications, it is offered is various formats.

 

 

 

 

TenCate Caldura is a leader in thermal barrier fabric, has a smoooth, slick face cloth that allows you to move in and out of your gear with ease. Utilising batts blended from DuPont Kevlar and Nomex, TenCate Caldura allows you to select the proven protection and performance that best suits the need of you department. TenCate high performance fabrics provide protection, comfort, durability and excellent value

 

- Comfortable, thin and flexible

As a world leader, Stedfast Inc. provides the Fire Service industry with products that meet and exceed the requirements of Fire brigades around the world. STEDAIR® 3000e and STEDAIR® 3000d Moisture Barriers have been developed to meet and exceed the technical requirements of EN469, the European for Fire-Fighters' Protective Clothing and AS/N254967: 2009, the Australian/New Zealand standard.

 

The enhanced bi-component membrane is comprised of an expanded PTFE (Teflon) matrix having a continuous hydrophilic and oliophobic coating that is impregnated into the matrix. This provides improved adherence of the seam tape and superior quality for seam protection. The moisture barrier meets and exceeds all the requirements of EN 469 Level 2. Also including viral penetration resistance, blood borne pathogen penetration resistance and chemical penetration resistance.
