Arc Flash Protection

Increased technical and performance requirements represent new challenges for fabric manufacturers active in the protective apparel market today. People working in a dangerous environment need improved protection against hazardous risks such as violent fires or electric arcing.

On the one hand, we can achieve this goal through products with integrated flame protection that cannot be washed out and through non-flammable materials (to the use as coating carrier).
