COLOMBO Flame Retardant fabric

  • Сolombo-AS flame retardant fabric

350gsm | 99% Cotton, 1% Antistatic | FR-twill 2/2
Colombo is a middleweight 350 gsm protective fabric made of 100% long-staple cotton with flame retardant finishing. The fabric includes antistatic yarn. Original twill 2/2 weave.

Colombo flame-retardant protective fabric is best used in such industries as Automotive, Petrochemical and Power energetics. Made of natural fibres, it is soft and comfort to wear and at the same time Colombo protects from the risks of flash fire, electric arc and ESD sparks. It is very durable and has unique balance of high tear resistance in both warp and weft directions. This endurance provided by trendy and tough weave twill 2/2. A carbon antistatic yarn is locked into the surface of Colombo, making it absolutely safe for use in explosive atmospheres. To prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) sparks, antistatic fibres safely discharge static electricity eliminating the risk of fire and explosion.

Examples of use of flame retardant FR fabric Colombo include but not limited to flame resistant clothing for welders, electricians and other professionals who should have heat, flame and antistatic protection. FR jackets, FR pants, flame retardant coveralls and other FR or FR clothing made from fire resistant fabric Colombo will give your employees maximum chance to be safe and protected when working at risk of fire, Electric Arc or impact of Heat and Flame.
