Tex Tech Product Brands
Tex Tech Industries is known for offering quality, high-performance brands that offer superior protection. Some of our brand offerings include:
Matrix FR Fabrics
Matrix FR fabrics provide a range of materials for protective garments within molten metal splash, and electric arc, heat and flame hazards with superior comfort.
OASIS Super Absorbent Yarns
OASIS Yarns are produced using Super Absorbent Fiber (SAF) that come in long-staple wrap spun and long stable ring-spun styles. These yarns absorb moisture immediately, preventing moisture from seeping into electronic products. OASIS SAF solutions have enhanced strength properties, are cleaner, produce less dust and come in a range of sizes and diameters.
CoreFX fabrics using Kermel CoreFX yarns to produce inherent FR technical fabrics for Fire-Turnout outer garments with exceptional thermal, abrasion, tear and tensile properties.
Panotex Industrial Fabrics
Panotex Industrial fabrics produced from yarns of 100% oxidised polyacrylonitrile or blended with other technical fibres including aramid. They provide a fabric which is naturally fire-resistant and can perform in extreme heat or for further processing such as carbonisation.
HiFlex-Angle Induced Fabric
HiFlex-Angle Induced Fabric is made with filling yarn at an induced 110 to 118° angle. HiFlex Angle Induced Fabric is built for belts in high-performance power transmission applications.
HiFlex Advantage – Belt Ready Fabric is also built for belts in high-performance power transmission applications. It is designed to get rid of unnecessary overlap seams from the bias-cutting process, which reduces downtime and increases belt life.
