It is a high performance fabric, by its inherent flame resistant fibers content with low heat transfer. It offers greater protection, maintaining its structure without shrink, or puncturing, or melt, resisting temperatures up to 260 °C.
To achieve the levels required by the FIA, Elast1 protects more than 12 seconds heat transfer before reaching a 2nd degree burn.
The 44% of natural fibers comprising the Elast1 fabric intensify moisture dissipation decreasing body heat. It provides an unusual comfort and convenience in the racing world, thanks to the air passage 115 cm3/sec., that the fabric admits.
The use of exclusive fibers provides an increase of 18 % in length to Elast1, enhancing comfort and mobility pilot.
The Elast1 fabric used for underwear, undergoes a silver-based antibacterial treatment which confers protection against the proliferation of bacteria by inhibiting the growth of them and giving the fabric a bacteriostatic and deodorizing effect.
The composition of Elast1 allows that the fabric could be dyed of any color, adapting to the FIA requirements and the customization of each user reaching infinite combinations.
Products developed with Elast1 offer technical solutions for specific motor sport competitions regulated by the FIA, adapting to the individual needs of each user.
The Elast1 fabric offers full warranty, complying with international safety regulations required for the 8856-2000 FIA approval - EN ISO 15025 , EN ISO 17493 , EN ISO 9151.
