Heat-resistant protective clothing fabric.

For welding and other high heat tasks, this functional, heat-resistant protective clothing is made of Torch Wear[R] fabric. When exposed to heat and flame, the fabric does not char, shrink or burn. It is not chemically treated material, but yarn created by spinning oxidized polyacrylonitrile fiber with an aramid-strengthening agent. When exposed to heat or flame, the fibers carbonize and expand, reducing the oxygen content within the fabric. The fabric provides protection while being comfortable enough to wear next to the skin.
