COBRA™ : PBI®/Lenzing FR® with Comfort Plus Lining

 PBI®/Lenzing FR® with Comfort Plus Lining Features:

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 the highest TPP rating ounce per ounce of any flame resistant material in the market.  For example, a 5.7 oz./sq. yd.  PBI/Lenzing FR® blend outershell lined with our lightweight 6 oz./sq. yd. Comfort-Plus™ lining has an outstanding TPP rating of 38 after five washings!  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.
