Protection

Fibrous materials are used in personal protection to protect the user from dangerous environmental effects that may result in damage or even lead to death.

These materials have applications in many other professional activities such as military, police, firefighters, welders, biologists, gardeners, electricians and workers from oil platforms, representing real benefits such as greater comfort, wellbeing and safety.

The most used fibers in protection include: polyester, polyamide, aramid, acrylic, polyethylene and elastane that may present various functional features such as thermoregulation, flame resistance, impact and perforation resistance, and antimicrobial protection.

Fibrous materials provide protection in several areas, including thermal protection (firefighter suits and protection against extreme cold), chemical protection (protection against harmful agents), mechanical protection (protection against cutting, drilling, abrasion and ballistic) and biological protection (protection against micro-organisms).
