Kermel : High Performance Fiber Special properties
Non–flammability – maximum protection up to 13000 Celsius
It is non-flamability by nature and permanent in manner. Clothing made from Kermel fiber thus offers maximum protection at very high temperatures (up to 1,000 c), contrary to clothing only treated with a fire-retardant finish that deteriorates over time.
This is provides inviduals wearing Kermel fiber clothing optimum protection in all hazardous situations. All Kermel clothing complies with the requirements of limited flame propagation (EN 533-S74-524 standard) and with heat transmission
Kermel fiber is an excellent thermal insulator, providing efficient protection from heat, even in lightweight clothing
Kermel fabrics are flame stable and clothing integrity is maintained for a relatively long time, thus allowing for sufficient egress time
Resistance to chemicals
The chemical inertness of Kermel fibers provides efficient protection againts the majority of chemical agents, even the high concentrations experienced when garments are splashed
