TENAX TEFLON® Shield Pro+
Tenax is among the most widespread fabrics for workwear.
Raw material and finishing
TENAX is a blend of combed polyester/cotton yarn (65/35%, 245 gr/sqm).
These features match for professional clothing, which need strong and frequent washings.
For dyeing cotton, Standartex prefers Indanthren® dyes, while for polyester, Dianix®.
Today Indanthren® dyes perform at best as for resistance to light and to strong water washings also with aggressive chemicals, while Dianix® dyes are specific for synthetic fibres.
Tenax by Standartex has a further plus: Teflon ® Shield Pro+ finishing.
Teflon ® protects fabrics from water and oil: drops of oil or other fluids bead up and roll off the cloth leaving it dry and clean.
Shield Pro+ enhances the properties of Teflon ® treatment: water and oil resistance is preserved even after 30 washings at 60°C.
It is really hard and challenging to achieve the Shield Pro+ certification: first you have to master Teflon ® technology and then possess the necessary know-how to exploit it up to its limits.
The Tenax Teflon® Shield Pro+ collection is suitable for workwear in the mechanical and chemical industry as well as civil protection and hospitality.
