Abstract
The objective of this proposal is to develop a lightweight, comfortable fire resistant fabric offering superior fire and thermal protection over conventional Nomexr products that can be incorporated into fire protective garments at significantly lower cost. Specific target for this proposal will be to provide a functional material that offers significant increase in personnel protection against a heat flux of up to 3.5 cal/cm2 sec (versus standard flux of 2.0 cal/cm2 sec) allowing the war-fighter greater ability to escape severe flame conditions. The principal approach will be to utilize high performance FR fibers enhanced with a durable nano-FR coating developed by Nanosyntex in a composite, hydroentangled nonwoven construction to produce superior flame and thermal resistant garments.
