Self-Extinguising Flame and Flash Fire Protection plus Comfort and Durability
GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology offers a high level of protection from arc flash and flash fire threats by balancing flame resistance, thermal insulation, and thermal stability. The unique technology self-extinguishes flames so that the fabric does not continue to burn. When bonded to traditional textiles, PYRAD-based products include attributes such as low water pick-up, reduced weight, abrasion resistance, and the production of FR Hi-Vis fabrics. Traditional non-FR textiles will continue to propagate flame, exhibit melting and dripping, and increase the potential of burn injury to the skin.
Garments made with GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology demonstrate low levels of burn injury prediction on PyroMan (ASTM F1930) tests, as reflected in the low incident of predicted second- and third-degree burn.
