 Topaz FX – Fighting Heat Stress

The patented „low heat stress“ technology Topaz FX from Trans-Textil makes flame resistant high performance textiles even lighter and more breathable. Topaz FX thus reduces the risk of heat stress and enables increased physiological performance in use.

The permanent 3D structure of Topaz FX®, as an active moisturedynamic grid, ensures optimized moisture management, the rapid transport of sweat away from the body and fast drying.

The Topaz FX technology is available as 2- and 3-layer  laminate with waterproof, breathable high-performance membrane systems from Trans-Textil, as well as lining fabric, base layer and protective hoods offering up to 60% less weight. All components are certified accoding to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®.

Topaz 251 high-tech PU membranes

Our track-tested Topaz 251 high-tech PU membrane system is used for all types of liquid barriers.

This high-temperature-resistant polyurethane has a high softening range in the area of 230°C (according to the scorch test) and is hydrophilic, highly breathable, highly elastic, non-blocking and offers an impermeability value of 200 cm (HuPF) after dry cleaning and oven testing.

Topaz 251 is wash fast up to 95°C, suitable for steam sterilisation up to 134°C and highly suited for seam sealing and patch application.

3D liners

The 3D liners developed by Trans-Textil incorporate spacers that reduce the overall weight of firefighting turnout gear by 15 percent for lightweight heat protection.

Involving a combination of liquid barrier and special 3D insulating layers, the liners significantly improve the breathability and comfort factor of firefighting jackets and pants.

The air trapped between the spacers on the insulating layers keeps outside heat away from the body.

Quilted linings

Our laminate systems made up of a liner quilted to an additional insulating layer provide optimum heat protection in line with EN 469 requirements.

Trans-Textil provides many other solutions in the field of flame retardance and heat protection.

New transfer-printing technology

Trans-Textil GmbH has developed a new generation of printed laminates that combine the characteristics of multifunctional flame-retardant wovens with transfer printing technology.
Along with offering optimum protection against numerous hazards, the textiles enable a wide variety of colouration and design possibilities. As test results show, transfer printing does not affect the protective characteristics, surface feel, breathability, thermophysiological comfort and wearability of the new laminate types in any way.
