ResistX is a value-driven collection of inherently flame-resistant protective fabrics engineered to defend against flame, heat, and electric arc while delivering a high level of comfort. Our team at TexTech created and launched this signature line of protective fabrics in 2017.
Performance Meets Comfort
ResistX, with its high-comfort performance, is ideal for use in numerous PPE apparel applications in the following markets:
- Industrial Safety
Flame and Arc Protection Meet Inherent Resistance
The high-performance ResistX fiber blend is designed to protect against exposure to direct flame, extreme heat, and electric arc. ResistX is inherently flame resistant; the thermal protective properties of apparel made with ResistX will not wash out or wear away.
Tested and proven under some of the toughest conditions, ResistX meets all No Melt, No Drip requirements for flame-resistant PPE and meets the requirements of these common safety standards:
- NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Category 1
- Arc Flash (ASTM F1506)
- Flame Resistance (ASTM D6413)
- Burst Strength (ASTM D3787)
- Random Tumble Pilling (ASTM D3512)
- Dimensional Stability % (AATCC 135 1 III A)
- Fabric Appearance (AATCC 124 1 III A)
- Colorfastness to Laundering (AATCC 61-1 A)
Comfort Meets Durability
Ring Spinning is a key differentiator in the development of ResistX fabrics. Other modacrylic yarn blends are Open End or Air Jet spun. Ring Spinning results in the highest durability and highest quality after-wash appearance.
The ResistX product line includes a range of knit fabrics of various weights and colors, soon to be complemented by a select few woven and specialty fabrics.
