Known for being lightweight and durable, TECGEN51 fabric is an industry phenomena proving superior TPP, RPP and breathability can exist within one material.
Its flexible nature allows firefighters a greater range of motion and increased comfort.
Dual-certified to NFPA 1977 and 1951.
TECGEN51 fabric is a flame-resistant, twill weave material built from a combination of high-density TECGEN fibers and para-aramids. Its unique blend is balanced to achieve optimal strength, thermal protection and breathability.
What is TECGEN Fiber?
TECGEN fiber is a high-density carbon shell surrounding a flexible core, which offers increased durability, flexibility and comfort over typical carbon-based fibers.
The NFPA puts standards in place to certify that first responder PPE is strong enough to withstand the demands of the job. TECGEN51 fabric outperforms those standards. Refer to the chart below to learn more about TECGEN51 Fabric performance.
