Protective Fabrics

advanced Protective Materials for Extreme Conditions

We produce added-value laminated components for a diverse set of protective applications. For instance, we have executed MVTR laminates for apparel, waterproof/breathable booties, thermos-formable composites for ammunition packs as well as CB-resistant structural textiles for tenting. Overall, our primary focus is using lamination as an added value component to a diverse range of protective apparel.

Chemical & Biological Protection
Our products range from non-woven/Saran® film laminates used to make HazMat suits to durable surgical gowns capable of achieving ASTMF 1670 and ASTMF 1671 standards for blood and viral barrier resistance.
Utility Workwear
One of our core competencies is the development and production of laminated hard and softshell materials capable of providing waterproof breathable functionality. Utility rainwear conforms to requirements such as ANSI/ISEA 107 for high visibility workwear, flame resistance and electrical arc resistance.

We use PVC/Nonwovens and inherently flame-resistant fibers – such as PBI®, Nomex® and Kevlar® – structured into woven fabrics or knits, and combined with selectively permeable membranes.
