When wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) made from CarbonX® non-flammable fabrics and apparel, professionals working in the world’s most dangerous environments can face precarious thermal hazards—like direct flame, extreme heat, molten metal, flammable liquids, certain chemicals, and arc flash—knowing they are armed with the highest level of protection in the industry.
Why Choose CarbonX?
No other brand of flame-resistant (FR) fabric or apparel protects professionals working in extreme conditions like CarbonX. With TPP and ATPV ratings far surpassing industry standards, CarbonX significantly outperforms similarly classified FR wear.
The superior performance of CarbonX products can be attributed to their high-performance fiber blend. This patented fiber blend provides an extraordinary level of protection and enables our PPE solutions to be optimized for a wide variety of applications.
CarbonX products are constructed to be truly non-flammable. They will not burn, melt, drip, ignite, shrink, or char when exposed to direct flame or extreme heat; are highly resistant to molten metal splash, flammable liquids, and certain chemicals; and provide excellent protection from arc flash hazards. Even after intense exposure, CarbonX products maintain their strength and integrity and continue to protect.
CarbonX products combine an extreme level of protection with maximum comfort. They are lightweight, soft-to-the-touch, and flexible, wearing much like cotton. They also breathe well, wick away moisture, and dry quickly, enhancing the wearer’s comfort and productivity and reducing the potential for fatigue and heat stress.
Because CarbonX products are inherently non-flammable, their thermal protective properties will not wash out or wear away. They have a long wear life and are machine washable and easy to care for. Apparel made of CarbonX fabrics can be worn daily as part of a total PPE solution, providing significant value to users.
