How Protal Works
Fire requires three elements; heat, fuel and oxygen. Remove any one of these factors and the fire is effectively extinguished. When a flame comes into contact with Protal’s unique intimate blends, tiny amounts of inert, non-burning gases push the oxygen away from the surface to stop the burning process. As soon as the flaming stops and the source is removed, gas production stops and a charred barrier remains – no melting, no dripping and no material sticking to the skin. The charring action and protected integrity of the fabric gives the wearer valuable time to react appropriately, while being fully protected.
