TenCate Protective Fabrics and PBI® Announce European Launch of Firefighting Outer Shell, PBI® Peak5®

TenCate Protective Fabrics and PBI® announce the launch of PBI® Peak5®. The new outer shell is a result of a strategic partnership between PBI®, a leading producer of flame-resistant (FR) fiber, and TenCate Protective Fabrics, a leading producer of FR textiles for fire service garments.

PBI® Peak5® outer shell offers firefighters unprecedented levels of durability and thermal protection while being remarkably lightweight. The fabric integrates TenCate Protective Fabrics’ patented Enforce® technology, which blends multiple fibers into high-strength yarn structures, resulting in a fabric that is both exceptionally strong yet lightweight.

“Our goal is to design products that meet the specific needs of end-users, particularly the challenges faced by firefighters,” said Michael Laton, VP of Global Strategy and Innovation at TenCate Protective Fabrics. “PBI® Peak5® stands out because it provides lighter-weight, more durable, thermal protection thanks to an advanced blend of PBI® fibers and Enforce® yarns.”

The lightest outer shell ever engineered by TenCate Protective Fabrics, PBI® Peak5® boasts an extremely high percentage of PBI® fibers for leading levels of thermal stability.

The launch of the new outer shell marks a new era in the TenCate Protective Fabrics – PBI® partnership in European markets.

“PBI® Peak5® was designed specifically for fire brigades seeking an ultra-lightweight outer shell that still offers the unmatched flame-resistance under extreme conditions that PBI is known for,” said Helmut Zepf, Managing Director PPE Division of PBI.
