  • Offers maximum protection at very high temperatures (when 2 ca/cm2 flame is exposed to the garment for 3 seconds)
  • Is an excellent thermal insulator, providing efficient protection from heat, even in lightweight clothing
  • Is a chemically inert fiber allowing for protection against the majority of chemical agents in splash situations
  • The fiber is solution dyed, this means the color is locked into the fiber when it is made allowing garments that are made from Kermel to offer exceptional color retention wash after wash
