TECGEN71 Outer Shell Introducing TECGEN71 by Fire-Dex

As an industry, we have been trained to think that you have to sacrifice thermal protective performance (TPP) in order to achieve maximum total heat loss (THL). Introducing a game changer for the fire industry, TECGEN71.

The additional thermal protection of TECGEN fiber allows us to pair it with the lightest thermal liners and moisture barriers available - ultimately yielding a reduction in the total weight of a composite system. Turnouts designed with TECGEN71 are typically 4 lbs. lighter than typical turnouts.

TECGEN71 features rip twill construction that puts the proven strength of 60/40 Kevlar®/Nomex® on the face of the fabric, while creating a super structure of the TECGEN® fiber inside. This combination provides a lightweight solution, weighing in at 6.5 oz/yd2.

TECGEN71 features rip twill construction that puts the proven durability and dependability of DuPont™ Kevlar®/Nomex® on the face of the fabric and a super structure of the TECGEN fiber inside.
