ContiTech supplies innovative materials for working at extreme temperatures.
Materials from international technology company and industrial partner ContiTech ensure safety and security in a wide range of operating environments.
For example, a chemical protection suit – manufactured using ContiTech’s innovative “Next Generation” fabric – is now certified to American fire safety standard NFPA. The flame-retardant material guarantees a high degree of safety in working environments where gases are generated and there is a fire hazard. It is therefore a reliable aid for firefighters, in industry and in shipbuilding.

Protective suits for which ContiTech supplies innovative materials are also available for work in extreme temperatures. They are absolutely ideal for preventing direct contact with a heat source. They provide brief protection even at 850°C. These protective suits are also designed for use at extremely low temperatures, offering protection even at -196°C briefly. All ContiTech fabrics are based on the Conti Barrier System, which uses high-performance elastomer coatings. Depending on the finish, this offers secure protection against chemicals, flames, heat or cold.
