 Key Performance indicators for Wakatac Proban

Garment Lifetime protection

PROBAN® finished fabrics retain their flame retardant properties for the lifetime of the garment. Fabrics acquire their flame retardant properties from the polymer which is embedded into the fabric. It can only be removed by powerful oxidising agents. See wash factors to be avoided

Flame performance

When exposed to flame, PROBAN® fabrics form an insulating char, this stays in place and helps protect the wearer. PROBAN® fabrics do not smoulder, have no afterglow, do not melt and the flame doesn't spread outside the charred area.
