PGI Difco to introduce fire fighting clothing at Expo Hightex
Sep '09
PGI Difco is introducing CHAMBRAY thermal liners at Expo Hightex. To better protect our fire fighters, PGI/DIFCO brings DuPont's Nomex on Demand patented Smart-Fiber Technology to its extensive range of fire service thermal liners quilting PGI/DIFCO's unique Nomex CHAMBRAY Face Cloth with WIKQIK Moisture Management Technology.

In emergency conditions, Nomex on Demand automatically expands when temperatures reach 250 oF or higher and gives fire fighters up to 20% more thermal insulation. Thermal liners made with Nomex on Demand remain thin, breathable and flexible, providing outstanding thermal protection, exceptional mobility and excellent total heat loss under routine conditions.

PGI/DIFCO's Thermal Liner "XE193 NOD Chambray" is certified to NFPA 1971 Edition 2007 and CAN/CGSB 155.1 Edition 2001 for Structural and Proximity Fire Fighting.

Expo Hightex is taking place on 7 & 8 October 2009 and PGI Difco is proud to be demonstrating its cutting edge technology. The company will be just one of the many fascinating innovators to be discovered at Expo Hightex 2009. If the thought of learning more about high-tech Canadian products turns you on, come down and check it out. You'll be rubbing shoulders with international industry and research leaders.
