GlenGuardFR protective apparel fabrics

Technical fabrics maker, Glen Raven, featured its GlenGuardFR fabrics for industrial protective apparel at the Petroleum Safety Conference. GlenGuardFR is made with Kermel aramid and modacrylic fibres that are inherently flame and arc flash resistant. These special fibres give GlenGuardFR signifi-cant advantages versus other fabrics in the market. First, the protective benefits are permanent and won’t wear off or wash out. Second, the fabrics are more colour-fast and abrasion-resistant so garments stay looking good longer. Third, because no FR chemical finishes are needed, GlenGuardFR is more environment- and worker-friendly. In fact, GlenGuardFR fabrics have been awarded Oeko-Tex Standard 100 textile safety certification indicating that they are free from harmful levels of more than 100 hazardous substances.

Technical fabrics maker Glen Raven and Kermel, a performance fibre manufacturer, joined forces to create GlenGuard FR, a flame-resistant fabric for the industrial protective apparel market. GlenGuard FR fabric is designed to result in protective garments that exceed safety standards and are more comfortable, more durable, and more colour-fast than any other protective apparel available in the market. Two years in the making, Kermel’s unique fiber construction and Glen Raven’s fabric design expertise combined to yield a new flame-resistant fabric that is softer and suppler, lighter weight, more colour-fast, and more abrasion resistant than other fabrics on the market. GlenGuard FR fabrics exceed the strictest safety standards (NFPA 70E) for thermal and body-burn protection and offer the best protection-to-weight ratio available for single-layer garments.
