Carrington Textiles is exhibiting its latest developments in stretch flame retardant (FR) and sustainable workwear products at Intersec in Dubai from January 16-18.

The company’s latest Flametougher 290AS Flex represents a significant advance in electrical arc flash protection with a composition of Cordura nylon 6.6 ensuring certified strength and EOL fibres by Xlance providing elasticity and comfort. The stretch FR fabric is designed to provide enhanced safety for professionals working in environments where electrical arc flashes pose a risk.

Additionally, Carrington is showcasing a range of new FR products, including Flameflex 300AS, Flametuff Satin 250 AS, as well as Flameshield Satin 425 developed to achieve Class 2 rating for welding protection. These products offer superior protection against flames and heat, ensuring the safety of workers in high-risk industries.

The Flameban family of lightweight inherently FR fabrics is also also being extended to incorporate Lenzing cellulosic fibres for moisture management, while Tahoe stretch workwear fabric containis 29% Repreve recycled polyester and has 20% stretch due to the inclusion of 4% EOL fibres.

“Attending Intersec presents an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our extensive range of products to the market, including textiles from our workwear and flame-resistant collections, as well as our NFPA2112 fabrics,” said sales director Paul Farrell, “Our participation will enable us to strengthen existing relationships with customers and partners while exploring new business prospects in this exciting region.”
