protection and longer product life. The
company recently completed a major
plant renovation that included the
installation of a new state-of-the-art
coating and lamination line.
" The new line allows us to produce
higher-quality coated fabrics, faster,
with more precision, " adds Krempl,
" leading to significant performance
improvements and, in some cases,
reduced cost. "
The company is seeing strong
demand, according to CEO Jerry Joliet.
" Industry, military and consumer
demand is extremely high with
pent-up needs challenging everyone
in our industry. Fire protection fabrics
used in construction, shipbuilding
and safety apparel, along with fire
containment products for cargo and
home safety, are all in high demand, "
says Joliet.
" Our products are almost recessionproof,
but we have seen shortages in
raw materials and significant shipping
challenges as a result of the pandemic, "
he continues.
Newtex is currently working on
new fire containment textiles for
electric vehicles and improvements to
personal protective equipment (PPE)
for wildland firefighters. Fire shelters,
designed to stop flames and slow the
transfer of heat from the tent exterior
to the inside, while maintaining
breathable air, are the last resort for
firefighters, and a growing need given
the proliferation of wildfires.
" We are actively working to
develop a more effective life-saving
shelter, as we've been disappointed
in the pace and guidance from the
U.S. Forest Service, " Joliet adds. " We
believe the user should decide the
appropriate trade-offs between weight
and protection ... whether that is
eventually hikers and campers, or
wildland firefighters. "
a unique polymer
powers a thermal base layer for outdoors
B
ased in Great Falls, Mont., H.E.A.T. Inc. is launching a
new heated base layer system for extreme cold weather
outdoor activities.
The H.E.A.T. One-Layer contains heat pads made of FabRocâ„¢
,
a technology comprising a uniquely blended, carbon-filled
polymer formation that operates on low voltage to produce
self-regulating warmth.
The heat pads are placed within a high-tech, moisturewicking
compression fabric, targeting the body's most abundant
arterial blood flow.
According to H.E.A.T. spokesperson Rebecca Carl, three
technologies work together to power the One-Layer: FabRoc
(the heating element), CorePower (the custom battery solution)
and the Bridge (the " brains " of the system), which is powered
by a custom smart device app.
Created by a heat technology company called EXO2 in
McDonough, Ga., the FabRoc polymer is thin, moldable, elastic,
wireless and waterproof. Seated between a liner and outer shell,
the technology does not interfere with mobility.
It emits heat in the far infrared spectrum, which is medically
beneficial and more efficient than convection heat, and is
powered by the CorePower via Bluetooth®
.
" Our customer is anyone who works or plays outdoors,
especially in extreme conditions or environments, " says Carl.
" All field testing has received rave reviews and we look forward
to building our customer feedback database as the system hits
the market. "
