Carrington Textiles will exhibit a range of multipurpose fabrics at ADIPEC, one of the world’s largest oil and gas conferences, held in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, from 12-15 November. The company will present several fabrics for potentially hazardous environments, including the oil and gas industry. All fabrics on display are UVPF 50 protected and are available with splashgard water and oil repellent finish, if required.

The event is an opportunity for Carrington to meet customers in the Middle East, where it recently embarked upon a joint venture with Lal’s Creations. Based in Sharjah UAE, the partnership will allow Carrington to enhance its current distribution capabilities, working with an on-the-ground partner to satisfy customer demand.

The fabrics Carrington will showcase include the popular Stretch range, as well as Alba 2, Satori, Teredo, Delta, Tomboy, and the durable, eco-friendly, Coolcel 200 Plus.

Carrington will also be presenting its award-winning Flameban Max 310 FC, which is a midweight, flame-retardant (FR) fabric with the added protection of superior electric arc (16.0 cal/cm2) and flash fire performance. Also on display from Carrington’s FR range will be Flameshield 230, a lightweight FR product with added moisture control – ideal for those working in hot and humid environments.

Another fabric that will be on show is Carrington’s Flametuff AS. This incorporates high tenacity nylon into the blend to give a significant increase in abrasion resistance and tear strength – whilst retaining the essential comfort properties of cotton. This gives enhanced performance characteristics that include: abrasion resistance tested to (12kPa) 80,000 rubs min; NFPA 2112 and EN 11612 compliant (100 wash flame retardant guarantee); and ARC rating according to ASTM F1959 = 13 Cal/cm2.

“The launch of this exciting new range of fabrics is the result of an extensive and lengthy research and development programme. We are delighted to be able to offer industry leading fabric solutions such as industrially launderable stretch, lightweight yet comfortable flame-retardant options and Flameban 310 Max Hi Vis Orange, our unique flagship inherent flame-retardant solution designed for comfort and safety,” said Richard Cumpstey, Carrington’s Export Sales Executive.
