PBI/Lenzing FR® w/ Comfort Plus Lining

PBI® is an extraordinary fiber that doesn’t burn in air. Blended with Lenzing FR®, this fabric is the lightest, most comfortable flame resistant hood fabric on the market. Even though fabric is incredibly lightweight, at 5.7 oz./sq. yd, it has an exceptionally high TPP rating. Add the Comfort Plus Liner to the PBI/Lenzing FR blend, and the Thermal Protection Performance (TPP) rating dramatically improves. UL Classified to NFPA 1971 Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting – Current Edition.
