Thermal protection

Our technical nonwovens help protect and safeguard people and equipment from extreme temperatures.

Resistance to flash-over, radiant heat (RHTI), convective heat (HTI) and contact heat, dimensional stability, breathability (resistance to moisture vapour transfer), lightness and comfort are just a few of the qualities of our high-performance and smart nonwovens.

Key applications:
  • Personal protective equipment, protective clothing, gloves and shoes for firefighters, industrial and military hazards,
  • Thermal protection and insulation for industrial and aeronautical sectors,
  • Thermal insulation for industrial engines, the automotive sector and electric batteries, etc.
Properties and process:
  • Fibres: meta & para-aramids (mAR & pAR), pre-oxidized polyacrylonitrile (OxPAN), FR acrylic, FR viscose.
  • Multilayer construction: nonwovens, woven or knitted fabrics (aramid, FR viscose, etc.), scrims (stainless steel, glass, etc.), film or membrane (FR PU, PTFE, AL or reflective aluminized, etc.), foam (FR PU).
  • Assembly process: needle-punching, lamination, quilting, stitching.
  • Finishing process: calendering, perforation, treatments (water-repellent, antibacterial, oil-repellent).
  • Formats: rolls, formats.
