Carrington Flametougher 280AS boasts enhanced tensile, tear and abrasion resistance and offers a multi-norm flame retardant treated solution that meets electric arc performance of 13.5 cal/cm2. This innovative fabric has made its debut at the ongoing Techtextil 2017 trade fair.
Flametougher 280AS is the first of Carrington's new generation of flame retardant coated textiles made with Cordura Nyco fabric technology for enhanced durability. The fabric has been industrial wash tested by Carrington's accredited facility and is proven to continue to offer flame, static electricity and electric arc protection without significant loss of performance, wearer comfort or appearance after 50 wash and wear cycles, making it a long-lasting solution for protective garments worn in foundries, petrochemicals and the oil and gas industry.
"As we look forward to our next fifty years of fabric innovation, we will continue to expand our fabric portfolio, offering solutions where durability is valued. We are pleased to be collaborating with the talented technical team at Carrington to deliver long-lasting, comfortable, performance-driven textiles that can meet the standards required for protective clothing, such as Flametougher 280AS with its multiple protective capabilities," said Cindy McNaull, global Cordura brand and marketing director.
Currently available in twill construction with anti-static grid, further variations are under development to expand the Carrington Flametougher range made with Cordura Nyco fabric technology. Future options under consideration include both lighter and heavier weight versions to meet market requirements and alternative constructions such as ripstops.
"Carrington's flame retardant protective fabrics help provide peace of mind for those at risk working in industries where they are exposed to extreme heat environments. Using Cordura Nyco fabric technology, we are now able to offer a flame retardant, durable fabric solution. We look for innovative technologies that help us to offer enhanced wearer protection against known hazards such as metal splash, chemical splash, fire, heat and sparks, as well as tough fabrics that can withstand the everyday rigors of the industries that we serve," said Jonathan McKendry, export sales and marketing manager for Carrington.
The new fabric is being displayed at Techtextil in Frankfurt, Germany. (KD)
