While competitors work to ensure their products meet industry standards, our goal is to exceed those standards and go above the norm in providing a persistent thermal barrier with minimal heat conductivity. CarbonX products offer protection far beyond the industry's No Melt, No Drip requirements, which typically only require that protective fabrics not contribute to burns in a thermal exposure as opposed to actually protecting the wearer from a thermal event.
The protective performance of CarbonX products exceeds these common safety standards and requirements (depending on product*):
ASTM D6413 ASTM F1506 ASTM F1959-99 ASTM F955
NFPA 1971 NFPA 1975 NFPA 1977 NFPA 2112 NFPA 70E
