Protective clothing – Coats

Coats, a leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, launched its new Flamepro at the A+A show in Düsseldorf last month.

Flamepro is a range of flame, electric arc and cut resistant yarns for use in personal protective equipment. It has been developed for fabrics that are used in a wide range of extreme environments, including fire fighting, oil and gas, power, anti-riot and military combat.

The range features a product for use in fire retardant underwear that is worn by fire fighters and is available in a large range of counts and dyes.

Coats says it has developed a unique blend indicator, which can take customer requirements such as improved bodyburn, higher arc thermal protective value (ATPV), increased comfort and lower cost and translate them into a specific flame resistant blend without the need for a large number of expensive samples.
