PR97® is an internationally recognised brand, renowned for its superior protective and comfort benefits in protective clothing for the molten metals industry. Developed in conjunction with an internationally recognised research company and launched onto the market in 1997, PR97® was positioned then and still remains the world's best secondary protective clothing fabric for the aluminium smelting and hot metals industry.

PR97® is a blend of natural fibres - Merino Wool and Lenzing FR™ - a cellulose fibre derived from wood pulp. The fibres are carefully blended then spun into yarns and woven to create a unique protective fabric which sheds hot metals.

The main benefit of PR97® is its superior protection against a variety of hot metals including aluminium, cryolite, iron, steel, copper, magnesium and nickel together with the related thermal hazards of convective and radiant heat and flame spread.
