Personal Protection Textiles - Fabrics for harsh, hazardous and hostile environments (2nd edition)

‘Personal Protection Textiles: Fabrics for harsh, hazardous and hostile environments’ outlines the global market for personal protection clothing in the institutional, workwear and private sectors, and details the most important legislation, regulations and standards that govern their manufacture and use.

Written by Claudia Ollenhauer, this in-depth report, with more than 200 pages and 50 tables, includes profiles of around 40 leading global textile companies that supply speciality textiles for personal protection apparel. Some of these suppliers of heavy duty textiles are integrated manufacturers from spinning to weaving or knitting and finishing; others cover parts of the textile process.

Full Product Description

Textiles for personal protection are designed to protect against heat, cold, fire, UV light, chemicals, micro-organisms, electrostatic charges and other threats. They include weatherproof and winter-proof clothing, cold-store clothing, equipment for rescue services, survival equipment, textile-reinforced armour, equipment for security services and the military, fire-blockers, stab and ballistic protection, and high-visibility textiles.

The second half of the 20th century saw a dramatic increase in the need for personal protection. The rise of health and safety requirements in the workplace has required the use of protective apparel for workers in many industries, while the threat of chemical and biological terrorist attacks, as well as natural pandemics, have become key political issues.

The range of physical, chemical and biological hazards and the means of combating them continue to increase and become more complex. This has led to the development and use of new textile fibres, fabrics and apparel constructions, which are designed to provide improved protection and safety, while maintaining comfort and efficiency.

  • The current and future market for personal protection textiles
  • Key trends in the personal protection equipment industry
