The latest technology from Schoeller is Pyroshell, a permanent flame protection for synthetic fabrics.

As well as offering protection from heat and flames for polyamide, polyester and stretch fabrics, the company says it also provides "outstanding" safety and visibility in all EN 471 colours and is comfortable to wear.

Aimed at end-users such as safety personnel, railway workers, police officers and electricians, for example, the three-layer protective fabric is available in 2-way and 4-way stretch versions or as a non-elastic.

Pyroshell can also be combined with other Schoeller technologies and is produced in accordance with the Bluesign standard.
