About Lenzing FR®
Lenzing FR® can be found wherever there is a need for flame resistance. The TPP values of Lenzing FR® are first rate and it considerably enhances the performance of aramid fibers. The break open behavior of protective clothing is improved following exposure to flames and heat. The skin continues to be protected. Lenzing FR® offers anyone in the emergency services excellent protection from 2nd and 3rd degree burns. And it goes one step further since its physiological properties reduce the risk of heat stress and heat stroke.
