Every beginning is difficult, but production has been successful over the years, has been changed and improved: Today Isotemp is an established manufacturer of individual protective clothing in the field of flame, chemical and heat protection.

PBI Performance Products, Inc. produces the high performance PBI fiber. The PBI fiber is widely used in premium outer shell products for firefighter suits, industrial heat and arc flash protection and is also used in gloves and hoods for firefighters. PBI fabrics are the first line of defense on the fire ground. They are renowned for their unique combination of flame resistance, durability and comfort, which is why they are first choice in protection for the most extreme conditions.PBI offers a wide range of fabrics that meet the needs of every situation and work effectively as an integral part of the protective garment. Each fabric has different properties and applications, but every PBI fabric provides the required protection from heat and flame that an outer fabric must deliver.

All PBI fabrics deliver excellent tensile strength and will not become brittle, shrink or break open when exposed to flame and high temperatures. This means that the integrity of the internal layers of the garment is protected and the transfer of any radiant heat is slower, allowing more time for firefighters to escape to safety in a situation such as a flashover.
