Protection Meets Comfort
Keep cool, safe, and comfortable in potentially dangerous situations.
The CarbonX ActiveTM Baselayer and Fabric are an ideal solution for professionals who want to keep comfortable when performing high-activity tasks in hot and potentially dangerous conditions. CarbonX Active’s fiber blend includes a hydrophilic fiber designed to absorb and wick away moisture.
Historically, comfort-driven, flame-resistant (FR) apparel has not offered enough protection to be seriously considered for use in hazardous environments. CarbonX Active is the exception. It is rated NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Category 2 for its extraordinary protective properties while most competitors’ garments of similar weight fall into Category 1.
Constructed to be truly non-flammable, CarbonX Active will not burn, melt, or ignite when exposed to direct flame or extreme heat and maintains its strength and integrity even after intense exposure. It is highly resistant to molten metal splash, flammable liquids, and certain chemicals and provides excellent protection from arc flash hazards. It also limits heat transfer much more effectively than FR fabrics and apparel of similar weight.
CarbonX Active is made from our TK-60 fabric, a 6 oz double jersey interlock knit that is flexible, soft-to-the-touch, and comfortable next to skin. It also breathes well and dries quickly, enhancing the wearer’s comfort and productivity. CarbonX Active can be worn daily as part of a total PPE solution.
