Stretch Kermel protects law enforcement officers in heart of the action
Mar '11
Working together with one of its weaving partners, KERMEL has developed an innovative product that directly meets the expectations of law enforcement officers working in the field. The Stretch Kermel textile base, both elastic and thermostable, provides the right balance between Comfort/Safety and Aesthetics, while offering a high level of mechanical and technical performances.

Requirements in the field have changed. Uniforms are now worn for much longer periods and are expected to optimise full mobility during interventions. The elastic quality of the Stretch Kermel solution facilitates ease of movement and it significantly reduces the sound produced by more “static” fabrics. Its excellent elastic properties after elongation promote very low residual deformation. The lack of creasing in the clothing is a considerable help in avoiding snags and therefore accidents.

Stretch Kermel may be printed with any kind of camouflage. It is highly resistant to abrasion, thus preserving performance in terms of infrared reflection. Stretch Kermel may be used in fashioning an entire garment, or simply specific parts thereof.

Stretch Kermel strikes the right balance between efficiency and safety, and helps military and police personnel to fully identify with their uniform and to make it perform like a second skin.

The KERMEL Company is the European leader on the meta-aramid fibre market for protective clothing against heat and fire, and it continues developing its diversification towards technical applications using its high-performance fibres and resins.
