UK: Klopman Develops New Protective Wear Fabric
Work wear and protective wear fabric manufacturer, Klopman International, on Monday revealed it has developed a new multi-protective wear fabric for the Italian Red Cross.
The company said the new fabric, a 180g/m2 tight-woven polyester, conforms to tough anti-staticity and liquid chemical splash standards and features a Hydrofoil finish that uses Du Pont Teflon fabric protector.
The contract has been awarded to Italian garment firm Technical Equipment with the new fabric range also boasting a special polyester fibre (Pontella) and yarn construction to provide a high standard of breath-ability and wicking.
"It's vital that the clothing worn by frontline personnel offers the optimum protection appropriate to the incident," Klopman said in a statement.
"The anti-static filament, protective finish and finished fabric all have exceptional long-term durability characteristics, making these new garments ideally suited for both domestic or industrial laundering."
