Developed as an economical alternative to Nomex®/Lenzing FR® blends. PGI utilizes a generic Meta-Aramid with similar flame, heat and chemical resistant properties to Nomex® brand Meta-Aramid, but at a lower price. PGI blends it with Lenzing FR® to give you a hood with exceptional softness, breathability and moisture management properties. The end result is a hood which performs similar to the popular Nomex®/Lenzing FR® blend at a lower price point.

Recommended for STRUCTURAL FIRE FIGHTING as well as other industries which require protection from flash fire, radiant heat, electric arc or cold weather.

Other properties of Meta-Aramid/Lenzing FR® include:
  • Inherently Flame Resistant
  • Minimal shrinkage in heat and flame
  • Comfortable, excellent moisture absorbency – wicks moisture off skin so it can easily evaporate. Fabric has excellent breathability.
