Singapore opts for enhanced Heathcoat Pbi Core protection

Heathcoat Fabrics are proud to be supporting firefighters around the globe, by offering the very best in outershell protective fabrics.

We are excited to share Singapore Civil Defence Force’s (SCDF) news as they show off their new Fire Fighting Protective Suits (FFPS) featuring Heathcoat Pbi Core outershell fabric, as showcased at the Interschutz Fire & Rescue expo last year.

Heathcoat Pbi Core is woven from a proven PBI blend, which combines an optimal percentage of the renowned heat and flame protective properties of PBI fibre with a supporting Para-aramid fibre to provide high strength. Uniquely, Heathcoat Fabrics has engineered this blend to protect the Para-aramid component against harmful UV exposure, all wrapped up in an appealing matrix-style design.

Features of the new suits highlighted by SCDF include:

  • Improved fit that provides better range of motion due to the lightweight and stretchable outershell
  • Highly breathable fabric layers that reduce heat stress
  • Improved flame protection to enhance safety
  • Increased abrasion resistance to enhance durability

SCDF says, “beyond the new look, the new suits also enhance functional purposes such as better protection from extreme heat and environmental conditions, and increased visibility in low light conditions.”
