COBRA™ : P84®/Kevlar®/Lenzing FR® with Comfort Plus Lining

 P84®/Kevlar®/Lenzing FR® with Comfort Plus Lining 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.  When you add the Comfort-Plus™ liner to this blend, TPP and seam burst strength improve. The Comfort-Plus™ liner wicks moisture away from the skin more effectively than other flame resistant fabrics making hoods feel cooler in hot environments and warmer in cold environments. Other properties of P84/Lenzing FR/ Kevlar with Comfort-Plus Liner include:

  • Inherently flame resistant
  • Low thermal shrinkage
  • Mid-range initial cost
