Kaneka is a Japanese based chemical manufacturing company. It has been the worlds leading manufacturer of Modacrylic fiber for over 60 years. Kaneka is currently the only manufacturer capable of producing significant volumes of Modacrylic fiber, for use in FR (flame retardant) garments as protection against flash fire and/or arc flash exposures.
Our Modacrylic Protex® branded fibers exhibit high performance with inherently self-extinguishing characteristics. There is no deterioration in flame protection after either repeated washing or normal use over time. Moreover, the superior properties of Protex fibers allow for blends with flammable fibers, such as cotton, rayon, and polyester in various combinations or with intimate blended fabric to achieve FR protection conforming to multiple industry standards.
