CarbonX® flame-retardant clothing delivers the ultimate level of protection where safety matters most—next to the skin. The last line of defense between the thermal source and bare skin, our flame-retardant, baselayer apparel plays an essential role in protecting wearers against serious burn injuries and more common nuisance burns. Our clothes will not burn, melt, or ignite when exposed to direct flame; are highly resistant to molten metal splash and flammable liquids; and offer excellent protection from arc flash hazards. Even after intense exposure, CarbonX flame-retardant clothing maintains its strength and integrity and continues to protect.
CarbonX offers flame-retardant baselayer solutions that cover head to toe: hoods/balaclavas, long- and short-sleeve tops, long-sleeve hooded tops, removable sleeves, full-length and boxer-length bottoms, gloves, and socks. Most of our flame-retardant clothing is available in either our Ultimate or Active fabric blends.
CarbonX Ultimate Baselayer clothes provide the highest level of thermal protection. They are made from our DJ-77 black fabric, an inherently flame-retardant, double jersey interlock knit comprised of a proprietary blend of high-performance fibers. Ultimate Baselayer apparel is ideal for use in extreme conditions and cooler climates.
CarbonX Active Baselayer clothes combine a high level of protection with maximum comfort. In fact, the CarbonX Active Baselayer is rated NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Category 2 for its extraordinary protective properties while most flame-retardant competitive garments of a similar weight fall into Category 1. Active Baselayer apparel is made from our TK-60 fabric, an inherently flame-retardant, lighter weight, double jersey interlock knit comprised of our proprietary blend of high-performance fibers as well as a hydrophilic fiber designed to absorb and wick away moisture. Active Baselayer clothes are ideal for use in warmer climates and for active wearers who want to keep comfortable even in potentially dangerous conditions.
CarbonX flame-retardant clothing can be worn daily as part of a total personal protective equipment (PPE) solution, providing significant value to users. Our clothes are machine washable and easy to care for. Professionals and enthusiasts who work and play in some of the world's most hazardous environments rely on CarbonX apparel to provide them with the protection they deserve.
