CarbonX® non-flammable fabrics offer the best level of fire and heat protection in flame-resistant clothing for the most extreme conditions. Based on patented blends of oxidized fibers, CarbonX® is the only fabric able to withstand the direct flame of a blow torch without melting, igniting, or burning even when exposed to the flame for up to 20 times longer than the leading competition. CarbonX® flame-resistant fabrics also retain this level of persistence and protection against molten metal and arc flash, leaving it as the only choice for professionals working in conditions where safety matters most. Our non-flammable fabrics can be found in flame-resistant clothing for industrial, fire, motor sports and tactical industries, although its uses in safety are endless.
CarbonX® FR fabrics are the non-flammable fabrics that save lives—accept no substitute.
Fire is one of the most volatile, relentless and potentially devastating threats on earth.
Fire can strike without warning and within seconds reach levels that are uncontrollable and deadly. Professionals faced with fire as a hazard require the best fire resistant clothing and gear available. When exposed to direct flame and temperatures of more than 2000°F, CarbonX® is the only non-flammable fabric that retains strength and flexibility and maintains its persistent barrier of protection. Flame resistant clothing, fabric and gear with this level of performance buys crucial time for individuals around fire and direct flame hazards and can mean the difference between life and death.
With temperatures ranging from 1300 to 6000°F, environments containing the threat of molten metal splash and spill are some of the most dangerous in the world.
With the ability to provide the highest level of persistent protection, a composition that sheds most molten metals, and a unique construction that will not melt, ignite or burn even under the most severe levels of exposure, CarbonX® fabrics are the only protective solution fit to stand up to the risk of molten metal.
An arc flash explosion produces intense energy that can super heat the surrounding air to 35,000°F in less than a second.
Individuals working in environments where arc flash is ever-present as an unpredictable and erratic threat require the best out of their arc flash protective clothing and gear. CarbonX® non-flammable fabrics are used in arc flash clothes and gear because they maintain their integrity and provide wearers with the highest level of persistent protection against arc flash hazards even when exposed to the brutal effects of electrical arcing.
