There were presented two new fire retardant fabrics from the collection XM Fireline – Fiji 220gsm and Poseidon 300gsm. Fiji fabric is made of 100% cotton with twill 3/1 interweaving and it is very comfortable to wear, Poseidon fabric is made of 80% cotton and 20% polyester and is very durable FR-fabric that provides outstanding resistance to tearing, more than 30N. Both of fabrics are made for countries with hot climate. At the same time Fiji 220gsm and Posedon 300gsm provide reliable protection against flash fire and electric arc.
