Protection. Comfort. Reliability.
Protex® shields workers from the hazards of demanding environments, providing higher FR performance for greater safety.
Protex is an inherently flame resistant modacrylic fiber that enhances finished fabrics with flame extinguishing benefits.
Fire requires a combination of heat, material and oxygen. When the flame-retardant polymer contained in Protex fiber is exposed to heat, the material self-extinguishes by inhibiting oxygen, instantly forming a char barrier that protects the finished fabric from igniting or continuing to burn.
Protex is the premium modacrylic fiber manufactured by Kaneka, a pioneer in the field with over 60 years of success, trusted worldwide. Protex surpasses the toughest FR standards. You can rely on Protex.
