Updated: 2008/8/22 17:30:00

The total protective performance of the m-aramid fibre New Star® and PSA fibre Tanlon® fabrics was studied. The difference of the total protective performance between New Star®, Tanlon® fabrics, Nomex®, Kevlar® and PBI/Kevlar® blended fabrics were discussed. The effect of the component layer’s basic properties, the outer layer’s moist status, and the total thermal insulation on the total protective performance of multi-layer fabrics used in firefighter turnout clothing was analyzed.
