PBI, an extraordinary fiber that does not burn in air, has changed the fire service’s expectations for protection, comfort and performance. Blended with Lenzing FR® the fabric is the lightest, most comfortable flame resistant hood fabric on the market. With a moisture absorbency of 13%, the PBI blend fabric will absorb up to five times more perspiration than typical aramid fabrics. Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) testing indicates the fabric has an excellent TPP rating. For example, two layers of 5.7 oz. / sq. yd. PBI/Lenzing FR blend has an outstanding TPP rating of 33.1 after five washing. Additionally, the fabric resists most chemicals and provides excellent flame resistance with char lengths approximately 25% less than aramid fabrics. Along with outstanding protection and comfort, the PBI/Lenzing FR blend is practical. The natural tan color hides soils and is easily washed and dried. Fabric is prescoured and heat set to maintain shape and fit. Other properties of the fabric include:

  • Inherently flame resistant
  • Low thermal shrinkage
  • Excellent moisture management – wicks moisture better than cotton.
  • Good chemical resistance
  • Incredibly lightweight and soft; no itch or irritation
  • Excellent TPP rating for lightweight fabric
  • Tan color hides soil
  • High initial cost
  • Average wear life

FABRIC:

  • Outer shell is a blend of PBI®/Lenzing FR® – approx. 5.7 oz sq yd.
  • 1 x 1 rib knit fabric - knit to allow approx. 130% stretch for maximum stretch and recov­ery.
  • Calendared to minimize laundry shrinkage.

STITCH TYPES AND SEAMS:

  • All stitching conforms to federal Standard 751 Specifications (FED-STD-751).

Face opening maintains original shape after repeated launderings.
