COTTON Cotton is a soft and comfortable natural material. It insulates and ventilates. One of cotton’s advantages is that it does not melt when exposed to flames and sparks and that it is difficu t to set fi e to. Our heavy-du- ty cotton twill is extra sturdy and durable. This is pos- sible because we ourselves are involved in and direct development from fib e to final p oduction. POLYESTER/COTTON The combination of cotton and polyester have proven perfect for making long-lasting garments. The breath- ability of cotton combined with the durability and colourfastness of polyester make garments in polyes- ter/cotton keep their shape and colour longer. Clothes in polyester/cotton are therefore an excellent choice for hard work that places great demands on both the wearer and the garments. MATERIAL DETAILS VENT AIR is wind and waterproof with breathability. VENT AIR keeps the body dry and cool while protecting against the forces of weather. The material consists of three-com- ponent high-tech weave, a functional material with a coating on the inside and a water-repellent treatment on the outside. ® ® Cordura is DuPont’s brand of extremely durable polyam- ide material. It is three times as strong as standard polyam- ide, up to seven times as strong as cotton and yet is fine and supple. We use it primarily as reinforcement in places that are exposed to hard wear. ® ProDry™ are the materials you wear closest to your skin. They transport moisture and allow it to pass to the outer layer. With ProDry™ there you don’t have to have damp and cold garments next to your body. Pro Thermal™ are the materials that afford effective insulation against both heat and cold. The materials de- tect and dispose of surplus heat at the same time that they keep out unneeded cold. Pro Thermal™ keeps body temperature at an even and pleasant level all day. Pro Vent™ are the materials with high breathability. They let out moisture and superfluous heat. They withstand rain, snow and wind. Pro Vent™ are resilient, protective materials worn on the very outside. Pro Tec™ are the materials that afford effective protec- tion against exterior effects. They are very resistant to wear and to tearing. Pro Tec™ is suited to extremely strenuous work in rough environments. SPUN DYED   Using the traditional dyeing method, the finished fabric is dipped in a dye bath, before being rinsed and then dried. With the spun dyed process, the colour pigment is added before the fib e is spun and the fabric subse- quently woven/knitted. In this way the colour becomes part of the fib e. The woven/knitted fabric achieves much better colour fastness, making it better able to withstand washing, wearing, sunlight and bleaching. YKK is a market-leading brand in zippers. The products are of high quality and set the standard for other players in the market. 3M Scotchlite™ person reflex material makes you extra visible when it’s dark and the view is bad. The material reflects bright white when i ’s lit up by the headlights of a vehicle, also when the wearer stands beside the road. 3M Scotchlite reflex material for p otective garments exceeds the highest reflex category of he European standards for reflec ive protective garments, EN471, as well as all strict, standardised tests. Coats epic has set a new standard in the thread market. It consists of a core of polyester fib e around which is spun yet another polyester fib e. The combination makes for a thread with maximal tensile strength, which results in seams with extreme durability. Duraflex is he trade mark of the high-quality buckles used in ProJob clothes, belts and carrying systems. In environmental terms, spun dye is much more eco-friendly than the traditional method of dyeing. As it eliminates a stage in the dyeing process, consumption of energy, chemicals and water is significan ly reduced. 207
