Pittards has developed a new flame retardant leather, FireblocTM that not only offers all benefits inherent to Pittards WR100X process (water resistance, softness, strength) but also provides high levels of protection against fire hazards whilst still retaining a high degree of dexterity and flexibility essential to the fire services around the world.
The leather is chemically treated to self extinguish once out of a flame. It stops burning within 2 seconds and glowing within 5 seconds, thus reducing the risk of re-igniting from flammable liquids in close proximity.
