Sympatex introduces multifunctional laminates Sympatex presents new PPE laminates at the A&A Fair in Düsseldorf

Industrial companies, craftsman's establishments, municipal utilities, energy suppliers, steel mills - they all have to protect their employees from the risks at work with personal protective equipment (PPE).
In order to meet these complex requirements with just one clothing system and thus to offer a cost-effective solution, Sympatex Professional now introduces for the first time multifunctional laminates that cover several protective functions.

In the high-end segment, the new Sympatex multifunctional laminates are equipped with the Nomex® Comfort surface material using an inherent flame-resistant aramid weave.
The high-quality base model comes with a surface material made of a mixture of cotton, modacrylic fibre and viscose. The laminates are hydrophobic as well as oleophobic.

The protective functions in detail:
Weather protection (EN 343, Class 3)
High-visibility warning clothing (EN 471)
Heat and flame protective clothing (EN 531, ISO 11612)
Electrostatic discharge (EN 1149)
Antistatic (EN 1149)
Electric arc (DIN IEC 61482-1-1, Class 1)






Both versions are equipped with the original Sympatex 100% PES membrane. It offers quality „made in Germany“ and highest functionality. The Sympatex membrane is not only absolutely water-proof but also provides the highest climate comfort even under extreme conditions thanks to the „Smart Dynamic Membrane“ technology: The water vapour transport rises along with the increasing level of physical activity, thus always offering a pleasant feeling.
Due to the compact structure of the membrane, laminates with a Sympatex equipment can be washed at 60°C or dry-cleaned without any problems. Another advantage of the compact membrane structure is a 100% protection against viruses and bacteria bound to liquids.

„In regard to the increasing supply cost pressure, we can offer a profitable solution and high-quality brand products with our multifunctional laminates,“ says Nicolas Moeller, Director Contract & Workwear of Sympatex Technologies.
