Introducing the latest innovation in thermal barrier technology, TenCate QUANTUM4 builds on the success of our COOLDERM™ Technology facecloth and adds PBI G2  aperture spun-lace batting for greater air and moisture flow, while remaining lightweight and flexible.

The PBI G2 layers are further enhanced by TenCate COOLDERM™ Technology, assuring it works optimally. COOLDERM™ Technology means comfort:

  • Active Moisture Wicking: Moisture is pulled away from the firefighter’s stationwear and skin, providing drier and more comfortable working conditions.
  • Evaporative Cooling Effect: As the moisture is absorbed by the facecloth, it’s distributed more widely. The breathable cloth provides a cooling sensation as the moisture evaporates.
  • Soft, No Break-In: Arriving soft and prepared for donning and doffing, no break-in period is required to relax the fabric for ease of wear.
  • Hypoallergenic Facecloth: No irritating chemicals against your skin, it’s safe to wear under any circumstance.

Lighter weight outer shells mean less heat stress on the job. Getting in, getting the job and getting out are what matters. TenCate outer shells deliver the same great strength and protection but with less weight to slow you down.

Moisture can weigh fabrics down and make them uncomfortable. TenCate COOLDERM™ Technology provides quick absorption and quicker drying times. By dispersing the moisture across the fabric, it dries faster providing evaporative cooling in warm climates and body temperature regulation in cooler climates.

Flexibility, range of motion and ease of wear are important on the job. TenCate fabrics deliver the protection you need and the comfort you want. Enhanced comfort means less heat and less stress and that means a safer wearer.
