This clothing requires special care in order to use it as long as possible. To avoid a loss of color of the upper material and a reduction in the luminosity of the reflective strips, only those detergents, specially tested for this field, should be used.

In addition to the optimum care of materials used, the solubility for soiling specific to this area of application, such as soot and chemicals, must be observed.

To equip the protective clothing, we recommend a fluorocarbon resin finish that does not interfere with the functionality of the reflective fabric.The dirt, water and chemicals repellent properties of the protective clothing are constantly renewed by this finish.

The protective clothing consists of the following materials:

  • Aramid fabric
  • Climate membrane
  • Reflective fabric
  • Insulation lining
  • Velcro fasteners

Furthermore, this maintains the breathability of the membrane technology used.The equipment renews the aramid fibers in use, which already have been designed to be flame-retardant. Regardless of the care treatment, this feature remains.
