Colmar, May 2018 - KERMEL company produces and markets the Kermel® aramid fiber for applications in heat and flame resistant garments. Main end-users who rely on Kermel's outstanding protection properties are fire fighters, military, public order and industrial workers.

Kermel® is an aramid high performance fibre that neither melts, shrinks nor burns under heat and flame exposure. In combination with its excellent textile properties, this makes the ideal choice for heat and flame resistant textiles. Engineered fabrics with Kermel® combine light weight and comfort with highest protection levels. Furthermore, thanks to their outstanding colour fastness and mechanical stability, Kermel® fabrics are very durable. Very low shrinkage in hot water and hot air makes them perfectly suitable for industrial laundry applications.

KERMEL supports its customers worldwide with dedicated technical assistance in developing tailored fabric solutions for heat and flame resistant textiles. Discover our wide range of end applications made from our Kermel fibres on our booth D460 in Hall 5A.


A new range of Kermel LCI solutions meeting Laundering, Comfort and FR Inherent requirements

KERMEL, the European solution-provider of textile innovations made from its flame resistant fibres, is presenting Kermel LCI, a new range of textile solutions designed for multirisk protection.

Kermel LCI is well-suited for a variety of working conditions. Compliant with international standards, it is specifically adapted to the needs of end-users depending on the climate constraints and can be used in coveralls, parkas, pull-overs, shirts, jackets or trousers.

Kermel LCI is a unique solution with durable properties over extensive washes. It provides protection against heat, flame and electric arc thanks to the inherent and permanent fire resistant properties of Kermel fibres.
Exceptional durability over the garment’s lifetime is offered, thanks to unique properties that leave the garment like new even after 50 washes. With its high dimensional stability, it retains size and shape through severe industrial laundering constraints.
Kermel LCI ensures the wearer a high degree of comfort. It is one of the lightest fabrics on the market with no sacrifice on user protection.


Kermel®, high technological textile solutions for army and public order

KERMEL specialises in providing technical textile solutions that protect against heat and flames. Kermel® aramid fibre can be used in each layer of a garment: the fabric outer shell, the membrane support, the thermal barrier and the lining.

After dedicating more than 5% of its turnover to R&D, KERMEL has created high tech textile solutions that protect users exposed to heat and fire risks:
- Kermel Code C7® fabrics for camouflage combat suits: with more than 40 years of combat suit development for troops around the world, KERMEL has the answer to the real requirements of the soldier on the field: Kermel Code C7.
It is essential that soldiers feel comfortable in their clothes and, as they are often also carrying weapons, electronics or batteries for e.g., finding an optimal weight for combat suits is key.
Kermel Code C7® is a thermostable, strengthened fabric which has very high durability on the field, while being simultaneously very light and very resistant.

- Protective clothing for law enforcement and public order: the main innovation here is the light weight of our jackets, which are now perfectly adapted to hot climates.
And as Kermel® fibre is inherently non-flammable, these public order suits are permanently fire-resistant as well as being resistant to molotov cocktails.
Specific protective clothing has been developed for national and local police forces, as well as for “gendarmerie”.

KERMEL has created numerous other tailor-made flame resistant solutions such as FR camouflage suits, flight suits, coveralls for tank crews and sweat absorbent FR knits etc. for armies and navies.
