No Threat Is Too Small
See it shed splash, spatter, and sparks like no other fabric.
CarbonX RepelTM is designed to defend against numerous hazards in one single garment. With a proprietary compound added to its fiber blend, Repel remarkably sheds molten metal, certain chemicals, flammable liquids, and other molten substances while providing extraordinary protection against extreme heat and direct flame. Sparks and spatter simply roll off the woven material.
Repel is one of the few non-aluminized, flame-resistant fabrics able to pass the ASTM F955 pour test for molten iron and aluminum. Its flammability performance, as measured by the thermal mannequin test, is also extraordinary, with only 15–20% of the mannequin surface reaching criteria for a second- and third-degree burn.
Repel is significantly lighter than other similar application protective options. Its lighter weight increases a wearer’s comfort and productivity as it decreases the amount of muscle exertion and heat stress that builds up over the course of a work shift. Although Repel is water resistant, micropores in the fabric make it breathable, further enhancing comfort.
With an encapsulated barrier of silicone, Repel also shields against harsh weather conditions, reducing wind penetration and repelling water.
CarbonX offers a choice of Repel fabric options (depending on the hazard risk):
- C-59 Repel 8.5 oz Plain Weave With Encapsulation
- CR-80 Repel 9.5 oz Twill Weave With Encapsulation
- RST-75 Repel 10.4 oz Ripstop Weave With Encapsulation
