Protective equipment provider TST Sweden recently introduced a line of protective clothing called HDHeavy Demolition, which the company says was designed for use by contractors involved with heavy concrete demolition in demanding conditions.

The HD-Heavy Demolition clothing line features Techsteel durable outer material, which TST Sweden says is 50 percent stronger against abrasion and tearing than the TST material it is replacing in the firm’s product line.

The clothing line features Techsteel durable outer material, which TST Sweden says is 50 percent stronger against abrasion and tearing than the TST material it is replacing in the firm’s product line. The new line, like TST's previous line, is engineered to protect workers performing waterjetting and water blasting as well.

Strong as Ever

The company notes that the HD collection is available as a jacket, trousers and gaiters and offers the same protective capacity as the regular 20/30 clothes. According to TST Sweden, 20/30 means the clothing offers certified protection against pin/single nozzles of up to 2,000 bar water pressure and for 3,000 bar rotating nozzles.

"One of the secrets of the 50 percent improvement in resistance against abrasion and tearing is the use of Vectran, a high-performance multifilament fiber spun from liquid crystal polymer," explains Per-Arne Andersson, who is responsible for research and development at TST Sweden. "Vectran forms the base, and then we use different methods to treat and prepare the fabric.”

Techsteel was created in collaboration with F.O.V. Fabrics in Boras, Sweden.
