Accessory materials

Materials to improve visibility are important accessory materials. For instance, fluorescent materials are used to increase day-time visibility and retroreflective materials night-time visibility. Even though there are hundreds of types of fluorescent materials on the market, only a few materials meet the requirements of heat resistance needed for firefighters' protective clothing. The colours of these materials are very sensitive when exposed to the smoky environments in firefighting. The retroreflective material and fluorescent colours are often combined in the trim near the hands, head and feet of garments. Motion increases the visibility. The manufacturers of reflective materials (e.g 3M Scotchlite™, Reflexite®, Unitika®) have heat-resistant products for firefighting applications. The basic requirement of other accessory materials like zippers and braces (suspenders), is resistance to heat.
