TECGEN Fabric

TECGEN® fabrics are made with a high density TECGEN® fiber blend and para-aramid in a comfortable and durable construction. TECGEN® fiber is an inherently flame resistant fiber providing advanced heat and flame protection capabilities. This fiber has a high density carbon shell, yet the core is engineered to be flexible, providing increased durability over typical carbon based fibers. This technology allows us to develop fabrics that offer high levels of thermal protection (TPP) and breathability (THL). You no longer have to sacrifice one for the other.

TECGEN Rescue80 Advantages

COMFORT: Unlike ordinary FRC's, TECGEN® garments don't require multiple washings to break in.

LIGHTWEIGHT:  Our workwear is engineered to protect you without weighing you down.

DURABLE: The FR capability of TECGEN® workwear is built into the fiber itself. It will not wash out or wear away.

BREATHABLE: Managing the heat is easier when your workwear doesn't trap it in.

INNOVATIVE: TECGEN® fiber is an exclusive, patented material designed to meet or exceed the standards set for FR garments.

MOISTURE WICKING: Draws sweat away from the body to keep you cool.
