Safety Components, a leader in developing fabric technologies, has released PF Zero finish, the first non-fluorinated durable water-repellent finish developed specifically for PPE fabrics.

PF Zero uses advanced technology that allows Safety Components the ability to employ a new water-repellent chemistry that is sustainable and fluorine-free. Important performance characteristics, such as flame resistance, TPP, and THL remain the same for Safety Components fabrics, regardless of the finish.

While Safety Components has already started producing materials finished with PF Zero, it could take several months for garments made with Safety Components PF Zero treated fabrics to filter through the supply chain and into the hands of first responders.
