TRI-BASE® contains Kevlar® by progressive DupontTM technology for strength, cotton and Lycra® for comfort and special fibers of Protex-M inside to prevent the flame spread and the ability to stop further combustion. When the flame source is removed, Protex-M has a self-extinguishing nature by which combustion stops immediately. When thermoplastic fibers, such as polyester and nylon, melt they produce hazardous high-temperature droplets that could cause severe burns to the skin. Protex-M melt-resistance and carbonization attributes not only extinguish the fire but also play an important role in preventing secondary injuries.
