The Advantages of Kanecaron / Protex

Inherently Flame Retardant

Inherently Flame Retardant
Kanecaron/Protex is an inherently flame retardant product in which the fiber resin itself contains the flame retardant ingredient. When the flame source is removed, Protex has a self extinguishing nature by which combustion stops immediately. Unlike FR after treatments, there is no deterioration in flame retardancy after either repeated washing or normal use over time.

Melt-resistant (Carbonization)

Melt-resistant (Carbonization)
Kanecaron/Protex creates excellent charring characteristics without melting or dripping when exposed to flame and high temperature. The char forming barrier will work to prevent the flame spread and stop the burn when the flame source is removed. As there is no melting or dripping, it ensures that no potentially dangerous molten droplets are produced which could stick to the skin and cause severe burns such as may occur with polyester or other thermoplastic fibers.

Highly Blendable

Highly Blendable
The superior properties of Kanecaron/Protex allows for blends with other flammable fibers, such as cotton, rayon, and polyester in various combinations or with intimate blended fabric to achieve a high level of FR performance.

Easy Processing

Easy Processing
Kanecaron/Protex can be blended with other fibers for intimate blends or in various fabric combinations. It can also be dyed with by cationic dyestuffs, resulting in a beautiful and long lasting color shade. Similar processing conditions, as with regular acrylic fiber, can be applied to each phase of spinning, dyeing, forming. Through normal processing, woven, nonwoven, felted or knitted fabrics, can be molded with a deep shape without sacrificing the hand of the fiber.

Chemical Resistance

Chemical Resistance
Kanecaron/Protex exhibits superior chemical resistance against acid, alkaline, organic and inorganic chemicals and is used commonly in industrial materials.

Soft hand

Soft hand
Kanecaron/Protex is light, warm, soft and flexible due to its unique fiber cross-section.
