Flexothane?

Flexothane®

Flexothane® is a technical fabric that offers you excellent protection. The polyurethane coating on a stretchable knitted base makes Flexothane® water and windproof, comfortable, noiseless, 150% stretchable, supple, highly tear resistant and machine washable.

Breathable, extremely comfortable

Flexothane® is a breathable fabric. The knitted fabric absorbs perspiration avoiding that clammy feeling. Your body stays dry and your body temperature is regulated.

Strong, supple, light and noiseless

Flexothane® is resistant to rough handling and foul weather. Moreover, Flexothane® is supple and 150% stretchable, which ensures your freedom of movement remains totally unrestricted.

Garments manufactured from Flexothane® are long lasting.

Machine washable

Flexothane® is highly resistant to several types of oil derivates, fuel, diesel, grease,… and the smooth PU coated surface can be very easily wiped clean. Our different Flexothane® fabrics are machine washable. Flexothane® Kleen is washable at 95°C, without losing its original shape. With Flexothane® you don’t have to worry about getting dirty.

Colours

Flexothane® exists in a myriad of colours. Don’t hesitate to ask for your company colours.

Ecological

In the production of Flexothane® we do not use chloride. Consequently when disposing of Flexothane® after use, harmful substances are not released into the environment.

Technology

Flexothane® consists of a high grade polyurethane coating on a stretchable knitted base and offers an excellent protection against rain and wind.

Flexothane® has been specially engineered to form a durable, impenetrable barrier against water and wind, while retaining a high level of wearer comfort. The polyurethane coating forms an impenetrable barrier and the knitted base assures a high tear resistance and a great flexibility in addition to absorbing body moisture. The seams of all Flexothane® garments are high-frequency welded.

The Flexothane® fabric is the result of the Groups’ vertical integration, where the entire production process is controlled from fabric to finished product. Flexothane® is produced on the transfer coating lines of the Sioen Industries Group. Extended durable protection against hydrolysis is key to this fabric.

The Flexothane® Experience

Put on a Flexothane® coat, and you will feel just how light and flexible Flexothane® really is. It doesn’t restrict your movements in any way, on the contrary, it moves with you. So much for the comfort part. Let’s get the job done. Go out and do some work in the pouring rain. Or take the high-pressure washer for a cleaning tour.

Underneath your reliable Flexothane® layer you’ll be out of reach of chilly winds and you’ll stay perfectly dry. And when the rain stops or you turn off the pressure cleaner, you can bet the outer layer will be dry in the blink of an eye! No need to worry about damaging your garment, the rock solid fabric can take more than you think. Or about making your hands dirty. Flexothane® is resistant to all sorts of oil derivatives and greases (even to some chemicals and blood-borne pathogens!). The smooth surface can easily be wiped clean. And after a whole day of hard labour, you can just take off your jacket, throw it in the washing machine and sit back and relax. Because Flexothane® is perfectly machine washable. Attuned to an intensive day in day out use, a durable Flexothane® garment never lets you down offering the best value for money a hard working (wo)man can get.

Flexothane® Essential is our basic Flexothane® quality. With its ±170 g/m² it is also one of our lightest. Flexothane® Essential is a one-sided PU coating on an undyed polyester knitting.Weight: ±170 g/m²
