OUR EXPERTISE (R&D)

The team of XM FireLine engineers has many-year experience in designing of Flame Retardant fabrics. We have developed both FR-treated and FR-inherent fabrics, because each type has its own strong points.
Our FR-inherent fabrics Artex are made from inherently fire-resistant (aramid) yarn. They are light yet incredibly tear-resistant with excellent flame resistance but FR-inherent fabrics are 2-4 times more expensive and have lower Arc rating (resistance to Electric Arc) then FR-treated fabrics. We weave our FR-inherent fabrics from 93% Meta-Aramid, 5% Para-Aramid, 2% Antistatic yarn (known as Nomeks III).
Our FR-treated fabrics, initially, are woven from 100% Cotton and also from Cotton blends with Nylon or with Polyester. Then, greige fabrics are dyed and chemically treated in special ammonia-cure equipment, thus incorporating fire retarding chemicals into the fabric at the molecular level. After that, FR-properties are imparted in the very structure of fabric and can not be washed away even after 100 washes! (when following care instructions).
FR-treated fabrics are very good choice for Oil&Gas and other industries where work load is high, lifetime of a piece of FR-clothes normally limited by 1-2 years due to intensive wearing and laundering. FR-treated fabrics have better ATPV (Electric Arc rating) and at the same time they are significantly cheaper then FR-inherent fabrics.
In the process of designing XM FireLine fabrics, we carried out hundreds of tests to select the optimal combination of materials, weaves and styles for our FR-fabrics. Then, we have tested our FR-fabrics in many international laboratories such as AITEX, BTTG, Kinectrics, SGS to prove their high quality and compliance to ISO/ASTM standards. As a result, Fire Resistance is ensured over the entire lifetime of all XM FireLine fabrics (when properly washed and cared). 

We have done all for your safety, you can be sure now!
