100% NATURAL COEX® FABRICS
COEX® natural fabric does not irritate the skin and does not cause allergies when it comes into contact with the skin.
It absorbs sweat and facilitates natural body transpiration.
THE LOI VALUE OF COEX® IS 50, THE HIGHEST VALUE FOR FIBRES
The LOI index indicates the amount of oxygen needed for combustion of a fibre. The higher the value, the lower the capacity of that fibre to burn.
A NEW CATEGORY OF FIREPROOF FABRIC IS BORN
IFP | Inherent Fire Proof Natural Fabric
It is a molecularly modified fabric that blocks flames. It is a fabric obtained by modifying the molecular structure of the cellulose fibre so that the product does not burn, creating a protective barrier against fire. It maintains its properties throughout its life span.
From the analysis of electron microscopy it is clear how COEX® does not modify the natural starting fibres, unlike the other fireproofing technologies on the market.
Before COEX®, fireproof fabrics were classified into 4 categories:
(Flame Retardant Fabric).
Fabric that hinders flames. Fabrics that are more resistant to flames than others. Definition that complies all the other categories.
DFR (Durably Flame-Retardant Fabric).
Fabric that hinders flames in a durable way. Obtained with polymeric filaments (nylon and polyester) and chemical additives that bind to the fibres and allow it to resist flames and not react to water. It maintains its properties throughout its life span.
TFR (Treated Flame Retardant Fabric).
Treated fabric that hinders flames. Made with threads that do not resist fire, but treated with flame retardant chemicals to comply with regulations.
IFR (Inherent Flame Retardant Fabric).
Fabric that is inherently flame retardant. Built with flame retardant threads without special treatments
or the addition of chemicals. Its properties remain unaltered throughout its lifespan and despite being washed.
