The Advantages of Kanecaron / Protex

 Inherently Flame Retardant

1Limit Oxygen Index (LOI)

Kanecaron/Protex exhibits a high LOI figure in comparison to other fibers.

Limit Oxygen Index
LOI is the minimum required oxygen volume (by percent) that a specimen requires to continue burning in a gas mixture of oxygen and nitrogen. The higher oxygen value required to make a test specimen burn equates to a higher FR.

Fire spreads even after flame source is removed.

2Self-extinguishing

In the case of flammable fabric, fire spreads very quickly when ignited. Kanecaron/Protex blended fabric will self-extinguish and a char barrier will form that works as a shield to minimize fire damage.

3FR Standards

Kanecaron/Protex blended fabric can meet various FR standards worldwide despite the different regulations and requirements.
