PyroTex: heat resistant fiber for home and outdoor textiles
The first product for end consumers by the fiber producer PyroTex Fibers GmbH, Hamburg/Germany, is a multifunctional blanket that is not only flame-resistant, but also serves as an accessory for living, automotive, outdoor and leisure. The high-tech fiber PyroTex is already used in areas that require fire resistance, for example in aircrafts, workwear or in filtration.
According to Robert Jarausch, managing director of PyroTex, the heat resistant fiber is well suited for the home textiles sector as it has soft, warming and antibacterial properties without the use of chemicals.
The new multifunctional blankets, for example, have been awarded the M1 certificate; the PyroTex fiber is certified in accordance with Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex.
