HybridShield® Thermal Arrays are 3D structured, high-temperature, elastomeric pillars on pliable, fire resistant fabrics. This innovative technology provides a fire blocking interlayer for use within flame and heat protective garments, equipment, shelters, and vehicles, and is available as single or double-sided 30″ x 60″ panels.
HybridShield® Thermal Arrays impart extreme fire protection to underlying materials by creating a conformal, highly flexible boundary to fire threats that is extremely flame resistant and dimensionally stable at high temperatures. Through the precisely tailored application of the three dimensional pillars, HybridShield Thermal Arrays provide an innovative fire blocking interlayer that has immediate utility within flame and heat protective garments, equipment, shelters, and vehicles. Compared to state-of-the-art insulative spacers and energy absorbing materials, HybridShield Thermal Arrays afford higher temperature resistance in compression, negligible water absorption, improved impact protection, minimal smoke toxicity, and enhanced flexibility for improved user comfort and protection.
