In the market for Protective Wear Ames Europe is an important player as development partner and producer of substrates for PVC and PU coatings and of linings for functional wear with breathable membranes such as PTFE, PU and PE.
Within the Ames XTENDO range of circular knitted fabrics we developed fabrics with flame retardant, hydrophilic, hydrophobic, anti-bacterial or anti-static properties. Next to PES, PES/CO and PA yarns we use special yarns like PA FR, Protex and Bamboo for custom engineered fabrics. The laminated or coated fabrics can be found in workwear, police uniforms, military clothing and chemical protections suits.
