Benchmark | Flame Resistant Clothing | Energy Blast Vapor Infographic

This is a series of infographics that show the various stages that Benchmarks fabric behaves under conditions of explosion (blast) direct energy impact, and vapor release from sweating and body heat retention.

Energy absorbsion

As energy is absorbed by the fabric, the criss cross structure closes, to stop the passage of energy to the wearer.

Breathable Structure

When the fabric is at rest, the fabric opens in its static state, allowing vapor and heat to pass though the weave.

Blast Resistance

The fabric structure under conditions of blast overpressure causes the fabric to flatten, locking out fire and heat.
