Treated Flame Retardant Solutions

PROBAN® :

Arvind Limited is the only licensed manufacturer of PROBAN® treated Flame Retardant fabrics and garments in India. Cotton and Cotton rich fabrics are treated with PERFORM chemicals and subsequently ammonia cured to make PROBAN® fabrics. This make the PROBAN® life time durable with the comfort of the cotton. Arvind's PROBAN® range includes Indigo Dyed Denim, Vat Dyed Solids, yarn dyed and knits. All fabrics are tested from international testing labs like BTTG (UK), STFI (Germany), Underwriters Laboratory (USA) for different satety standards like ISO 11612, ISO 11611, NFPA 2112 and NFPA 70E. PROBAN fabrics produced by Arvind are also tested inhouse and by Rhodia's UKAS (ISO 17025) accredited lab in UK before use. Rhodia issues PROBAN® labels for insertion into garments, enabling identification of genuine PROBAN garments.

PYROVATEX®:

PYROVATEX® treated fabrics from Arvind offer very good protection against heat & flame. These fabrics are durable to multiple washes and certified as per ISO 11612, ISO 11611 from BTTG (UK) and STFI (Germany). PYROVATEX® treated fabrics also come in combination with anti-static grids, hi-visibility colors and OWR finishes. Chemical repellent finish option is also available in combination with FR for protection against select hazardous chemicals. Arvind's long history in manufacturing cotton textiles ensure supreme quality of the final products making them soft to touch with a rich feel.

Inherent Flame Retardant Solution

NOMEX® IIIA:

Arvind Limited is the exclusive licencee of DuPont for manufacturing NOMEX® branded fabrics and garments in India. NOMEX® brand fibers are inherently flame resistant based on polymer chemistry. It will not diminish during the life of the fiber. It gives protection against flash fire and electric arc exposure. Apart from the very good FR properties, NOMEX® has also got very good tensile properties, chemical resistance and thermal stability. Presence of 5% KEVLAR® in the NOMEX® IIIA inhibits thermal shrinkage, thus reducing the probability of break-open and the subsequent loss of the protective barrier. It always comes with 2% pre-blended P-140 carbon based anti-static fibers for protection from static hazards.

PROTEX®:

Arvind also manufactures FR fabrics using the inherently flame-resistant PROTEX® modacrylic fibers from Kaneka Corporation, Japan. PROTEX® exhibits a high LOI value and is designed to blend perfectly with natural and man-made fibers to produce high quality textiles with superb handle, drape and appearance. PROTEX® does not melt or drip when ignited. A PROTEX® blended fabric will self-extinguish and form a char barrier that works as a shield to minimize fire damage. It is also available in hi-visibility colors certified as per EN-471 standards.

Heat & Cut Protections

Heat & Cut protection fabrics are manufactured using Kevlar® para-aramid staple fiber from DuPont. Arvind is exclusive licensee for manufacturing Kevlar® fabrics for Heat & Cut protection applications like hand gloves, aprons, safety shoes, garments reinforcements etc. These fabrics are available in both woven (330 gsm, 450 gsm, 600 gsm and 750 gsm) and Knits (210 gsm Rib, 270 gsm double knit with cotton) forms. These fabrics are tested as per EN 388 (Cut resistance) and EN407 (Contact heat) standards.

Anti - Ballistic Applications

Arvind uses Twaron® brand of para-aramid filaments from Teijin Aramid, Netherlands to manufacture fabrics for anti-ballistic applications like Bullet Proof Jackets (BPJ), Helmets and Hard Armoured Vehicles. It includes fabrics like the CT 714 using 1100 dtex Twaron® filament for BPJ applications and T750 using 3300 dtex Twaron® filaments for Helmets. These highly tech fabrics are made by using specially designed equipment from Europe and technical guidance from Teijin Aramid.
