CROSSTECH® S/R fabric is an intimate bi-component membrane that is laminated to a flame-resistant NOMEX® lllA woven fabric. This fabric is highly breathable and liquid penetration resistant to blood, body fluids, common accident scene chemicals*, and water, providing comfort and heat stress relief unmatched by any other liquid barrier.
Side pockets with two expansion pleats and flaps with hook and loop closure are positioned on each thigh for ready access and storage. Right rear patch pocket with flap. An extra layer of shell material reinforces the lower half of the cargo pockets for longer wear.
Optional Reflective Trim with TRIMTRAX™
3M SCOTCHLITE™ reflective material in 3" triple trim design in your choice of lime/yellow (silver center) or red/orange (silver center) provides day/night visibility.
All seams and stitching through the CROSSTECH® S/R fabric are sealed with GORE-SEAM® tape on a proprietary GORE-SEAM® sealing machine, utilizing the latest technology from W.L. Gore & Associates, Inc.
Both coats and pants are constructed with NOMEX® thread for its inherent elasticity and flame resistance. Seam strength far exceeds the minimum requirements established by NFPA 1951 for longer service life.
*NFPA defined “common chemicals": Battery acid (37% sulfuric), gasoline (ASTM Ref. Fuel C), hydraulic fluid (phosphate-ester), aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) and swimming pool chlorine solution (65% free CI).
