Lenzing™ FR, a cellulose fiber from the house of Lenzing, protects against heat stress. Produced from beechwood, a natural raw material, Lenzing™ FR offers protection against heat and flame in a variety of different applications. Around the world Lenzing™ FR is produced using the Lenzing Modal® process. This ensures that the very highest fiber tenacities are obtained and makes it possible to insert the FR agent in a permanent manner.
The High Performance Fiber
Lenzing™ FR offers protection from all kinds of heat: fire, radiant heat, electric arcs, molten metals and flash fires. The most important goal of protective clothing is to prevent the skin from burning. After all, the skin is the body's largest and most sensitive organ.
From a technical point of view, Lenzing™ FR is a work of art. The fiber, which is made of a natural raw material, has a flame resistant substance incorporated throughout the cross-section of the fiber which ensures inherent flame protection. The protective substance cannot be removed by either washing or abrasion. Flame resistant once, flame resistant forever...
The skin - the body's most important organ
Protection from burns
People in professions involving a high level of risk from burns need to wear special protective clothing. Apart from direct fire, heat, in its different forms, represents a significant danger. Lenzing™ FR, with its incorporated flame resistant agent, protects the skin from heat like no other flame resistant high performance fiber.
