The newest CarbonX® product line, CarbonX Arc by TexTech Industries, is competing for Best in Show in the New Product Showcase at the 2019 NSC Expo in San Diego, September 9–11.
CarbonX Arc combines the brand’s signature non-flammable protective properties with maximum comfort in defending against arc flash hazards. At 5.0 oz, CarbonX Arc is one of the lightest-weight Hazard Risk Category 2 protective fabrics on the market. Engineered for NFPA 70E compliance, CarbonX Arc meets all of the requirements of NFPA 2112 and easily exceeds the standards of ASTM F1506 with a 9.4 ATPV rating and a 10.7 TPP rating.
CarbonX Arc is constructed of a truly non-flammable, high-performance fiber blend that is optimized to protect against arc flash hazards as well as direct flame and extreme heat.
The lightweight interlock knit fabric is soft to the touch, flexible, and odor resistant. It breathes well, wicks away moisture, and dries quickly, enhancing the wearer’s comfort and productivity.
Current applications for CarbonX Arc include arc flash-rated shirts and baselayer/ underwear. Apparel made of CarbonX Arc can be worn daily as part of a total PPE solution, providing significant value to users.
CarbonX Arc will be on display at the company’s booth (#2821) and in the New Product Showcase (Hall D) at the NSC Expo. Vote for CarbonX Arc for Best in Show here.
