What is Covec?
Covec™ SR4 and SR6 is developed by a UK company and offers certain advantages over more traditional materials like Aramids (Kevlar) and UHMWPE’s and a lot of advantages over Polyamide yarns (like Nylon) and Polyesters yarns. In a nutshell:
- High abrasion resistance - tests show a single layer of leather tested to CE Level 1 passes at 4.74 seconds compared to 5.21 seconds (SR4) and 6.26 seconds (SR6). These are valuable seconds you’ll need if you take a tumble.
- High cut resistance ( 3 x that of Aramids such as Kevlar)
- Low thermal conductivity - won’t burn you like Polyethylene’s like Dyneema may.
- Does not degrade with washing and wearing as with most Aramids
- High burst strength with triple stitching tested to 955 kPa.
- Micro Climate Inside - keeping your body at a controlled temperature
- Breathable - the knitted structure allows for good air circulation
- Lightweight - 5 x stronger than steel for the same weight!
