In an industry constantly faced with adapting to new challenges and potential threats from both non-friendly powers and terrorism, the demand from military and first response personnel for CBRN protection has significantly increased.

Heathcoat Fabrics manufacture an extensive range of advanced technical textiles. In the last decade the company has had direct involvement in developing CBRN fabric technology, specifically the controlled impregnation of fabrics with activated carbon compounds. Having the technology to successfully impregnate a wide range of woven, non-woven and knitted fabrics with our own or customer specific activated carbon formulations is a core proficiency of our highly specialised business.

Heathcoat Fabrics are demonstrating their capability and commitment to CBRN solutions with a new range of activated carbon liners which it was proud to present at Milipol, the leading international event for homeland security. These new activated carbon liners, currently undergoing testing, have been developed to incorporate the following features and pull together all the learning and expertise gained over the past decade:

• lighter weight
• enhanced breathability
• a reduced thermal burden
• greater flexibility
• optimised comfort
