Teijinconex Coolnex Stretch is a solution for workers that need Flame Retardant (FR) protection work wear that is also comfortable. Already available in Japan, the fabric is now being introduced in the EMEA region.

The latest addition to the Teijinconex family of fabrics is a unique single-layer, high performance textile that combines the best in FR protection with built-in stretch and recovery, says the company.

The fabric is exclusively engineered with Solotex stretch technology, which offers excellent fabric memory, elasticity and flexibility. It offers inherent stretch, meaning that performance is maintained after laundering and keeps its stretch/recovery functionality over time.

Originally developed for casual wear, Teijin’s textile engineers now have applied it for FR protective clothing.

Àngels Cornellana Morros, product manager Teijinconex Fabrics, Teijin Aramid said, “Contrary to common belief, there is no need to choose between comfort and safety in protective work wear. FR durable work wear can now also be comfortable. The unique qualities of the Teijinconex Coolnex Stretch fabric make it the ideal solution for maximum mobility and superior FR protection in high activity environments.”

The new fabric will be shown at Teijin Aramid's stand at the upcoming Safety Summit in Schelle, Belgium.
