Teijin launches new fire-proof denim-like fabric

Dec '16
Teijin Limited, a technology-driven world leader in aramid fibres, has announced the launch of Xfire Denim, a practical and fireproof denim-like aramid fibre fabric for firefighting uniforms. The new aramid fabric is expected to meet the growing demand for extra-manoeuvrable clothing for volunteer fire corps. Sales of Xfire Denim will begin this month.

Japanese manufacturers will start selling uniforms for fire corps made with Xfire Denim in 2017.

Made with Teijinconex meta-aramid fibre, Xfire Denim is produced with a proprietary technology to realise a pliant texture similar to that of denim, a universally popular fabric. Xfire Denim also offers outstanding comfort and design flexibility. The fabric’s unique appearance also is practical because it enables professional and volunteer fire corps to be easily distinguished when working side-by-side.

The launch of Xfire Denim further strengthens Teijin’s leading position in the Japanese market for protective apparel, where the company is renowned for incorporating high-performance materials in innovative hybrid safety solutions. Looking ahead, Teijin forecasts global sales in its safety and protection field to rise to JPY 20 billion by 2020.

Over the decades, Teijin’s durable, heat-resistant and flame-retardant aramid fibres have provided police, fire-fighters and chemical-plant workers with increasingly high-performance clothing for added protection and safety. Teijin is the top-selling brand of protective apparel for professional fire-fighters in Japan, who highly value the heat-resistant and flame-retardant properties of Teijinconex. (GK)
