Coats, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, launched two innovative new products, Flamepro and Signal, at A+A, the largest international trade fair on safety, security and health, Dusseldorf, Germany, November 5 to 8, 2013. Flamepro is a range of flame, electric arc and cut resistant yarns for use in personal protective equipment, while Signal is a range of reflective tapes for high visibility applications.
The range of Flamepro yarns has been developed for fabrics used in a wide range of extreme environments including fire fighting, oil and gas, power, anti-riot and military combat. The versatile range includes a product for use in fire retardant underwear worn by firefighters and Formula 1 drivers and is available in a large range of counts and dyes.
Coats has developed a unique blend indicator which can take customer requirements such as improved bodyburn, higher ATPV (arc thermal protective value), increased comfort and lower cost, and translate them into a specific flame resistant blend without the need for a large number of expensive samples.
Signal is a range of high quality reflective tapes for workwear, protective clothing, apparel and accessories which is available globally. It is available in flame resistant and standard versions suitable for both domestic and industrial wash applications. All products meet or exceed the requirements of high visibility and heat and flame resistant norms. It is available in lime and silver and different widths.
