Thermostable garments are made from an intimate blend of
naturally non-flammable Rhovyl®
fibers and aramide which protect its user from heat and
flames, while remaining comfortable, supple and
Thanks to the considerable chemical inertia of Rhovyl®
fibers, Individual Protective Equipment (IPE) in
Securacid provide effective protection against the risk of
spattering of liquid or solid chemical products.
Given the hydrophobic nature of Rhovyl®
fibers, IPE in Rhovyl'VP®
Antistatic are perfectly suited to the need for protection
in controlled irradiation zones even after several wash
cycles. Moreover, they are easily decontaminated by
washing in industrial machines.
The incorporation of a metal fiber or a carbon loaded
thread endows Rhovyl'VP®
Antistatic and Rhovyl'VP®
Securacid garments with permanent anti-static properties.
They protect the user from the risk of ignition from
sparks and offer enormous security in zones at risk from
Comfort, workers are protected from the risk of
inflammation and splashes from chemicals with increased wear ability
owing to the high thermal insulation of the
fiber and outward evacuation of moisture.
garments may be dry cleaned, washed in standard industrial
washing machines. They dry rapidly, do not need ironing
and are fully bleach-resistant. However, dyes or combined fibers may be sensitive.
protective equipment in Rhovyl®
fibers satisfies the most demanding users: nuclear power
stations, the fire brigade, chemical industries, the
Italian Red Cross, the Forces (Army and Air Force, the
Police Force, etc.).
order to meet the requirements of individual protective
equipment (IPE), Rhovyl has developed a range of Rhovyl'VP®
fibers, in conformance with European directives for each
application, and has adopted a policy of recognized
quality guarantee labels.
to their intrinsic qualities (natural and permanent
non-flammability, resistance to chemical products, the
suppression of the risk of ignition, good thermal
insulation, moisture management…), Rhovyl®
fibers correspond to the requirements of the army, the
prison service, the police and firemen. Used pure or in
blends for personal protective equipment, they serve in
the fight against heat and flames, against the risks of
chemical spills and explosions and against the cold.
