COBRA™ : P84®/Kevlar®/Lenzing FR®

 P84®/Kevlar®/Lenzing FR® Features:

As many firefighters have already experienced, hoods made of P84 polyimide fiber have demonstrated their resistance to flame and heat and remain durable under the toughest conditions. The fabric’s “high moisture gain” means it picks up moisture off your skin more effectively. P84’s unique trilobal fiber structure allows air to circulate, and the Lenzing FR provides softness in the fiber matrix and high absorption characteristics. The addition of Kevlar in the blend minimizes shrinkage when exposed to intense heat or flame as well as enhancing durability. Other properties of P84/Kevlar/ Lenzing FR include:

  • Inherently Flame Resistant
