TenCate Protective Fabrics Introduces TenCate Gemini XTL™, TenCate Millenia™
TenCate Gemini XTL™ protective fabric is based on polybenzimidazole (PBI) fiber, and offers greater tear and tensile strength and better abrasion resistance than other PBI-based outer-shell fabrics currently available, TenCate reports.
TenCate Millenia™ fabric is based on poly(p-phenylene-2,6-benzobisoxazole) (PBO) fiber, and provides for the strongest and lightest system for firefighter turnout gear in the world, TenCate reports. The fabric is offered in a layered system and features a highly breathable thermal moisture barrier based on patented 3-D technology that facilitates sweat evaporation and reduced heat stress. According to TenCate, Millenia also offers good protection against water, chemical and blood splashes, and blood-transmitted diseases.
