Polymer Group Inc (PGI) unveiled an expanded family of protective apparel fabrics and converted garments that deliver enhanced safety and greater comfort for workers wearing them on the job.

The new line-up includes coated and laminated fabrics with high-barrier properties and finishes to protect workers against fire, dangerous air particulates, toxic chemicals, blood transfer and other hazards. These durable materials have been designed to withstand the toughest jobs, including toxic site clean up, emergency response, clean room and general industrial uses.

"PGI is committed to being the leader in medical and protective apparel markets," said Fernando Marin, senior director, global medical business. "We will continue to expand our offerings in this area to meet market needs, and to help our customers grow and succeed. We have drawn on our broad range of capabilities to develop these new protective fabrics and finished garments to enable workers to perform their jobs both safely and comfortably."

The new offerings range from lightweight polypropylene for general purpose uses, to higher-performance coated, laminated, and flame retardant (FR) materials for a wide range of needs. These breathable and durable materials are resistant to toxic chemicals and surface resistivity, and meet ASTM, Antistatic and other requirements.

PGI will feature the new products at INDEX08 this week in Geneva (Booth 2131). Among the new offerings are:
• Pentamax - This top-of-the-line offering delivers the maximum in personal protection and comfort, with five layers of polypropylene providing a higher barrier against dry particulate and light-liquid spray than standard materials.
