Meta-aramid has excellent flame retardant properties and can be used under the hood to include flexible high temperature hoses such as hoses that supply hot air to the intake manifold and turbocharger hoses. Inside the car, the meta-aramid prevents the engine compartment from overheating, the radiator hose bursts, and the windshield wiper fails even in hot weather conditions.
Racing protection with meta-aramid helps the racing industry improve all aspects of fire threats. Racing suits and clothing made with FR meta armid are at the heart of this safety improvement.
This protection is long lasting. Whether it is protective clothing, underwear, socks or gloves, it can prevent abnormal flame retardant or wear.
The racing equipment of the meta-aramid fiber has inherent flame retardancy. When exposed to a flame, it does not burn or melt in the air. Because meta-aramid is carbonized and thickens when exposed to high temperatures; it forms a thermal barrier between the heat source and the skin. This unique response to high temperatures provides valuable escape time in the event of a fire and helps protect the wearer from injury.
