Breathable Aluminized Fabrics for Firefighting Operations

(PRWEB) Newtex has introduced Z-Flex® Air™, the first line of breathable aluminized fabrics designed to keep firefighters and industrial operators cooler and more comfortable in extreme conditions and workspaces.

These breathable protective fabrics allow body heat and perspiration to escape, improving total heat loss (THL) by 65 percent, while still delivering all the radiant protective performance (RPP) and thermal protective performance (TPP) of a standard Z-Flex® reflective aluminized fabric. 

Newtex uses a proprietary microperforation process to optimize the placement, pattern, and dimensions of microperforations on the aluminized fabric. Z-Flex Air is now commercially available with leading U.S. industrial personal protective equipment manufacturers and will be available in NFPA-compliant proximity suits from leading manufacturers in the fall of 2015.
