PBI Matrix combines the high-performing, heat and flame protection of PBI Gold with a durable matrix of high-strength 400 or 600 denier  filaments to reduce wear and tear. This combination results in:

  • PBI flame and break-open protection
  • Increased abrasion resistance 
  • Improved trap tears

Tested in labs, fire schools, and in real-world fires throughout the country, PBI Matrix stands up to aggressive use under some of the most demanding applications. Since the introduction of this visionary material into the marketplace in 2003, more metropolitan fire departments have chosen PBI Matrix than any other outer shell on the market.

This fabric is also marketed as Gemini and Gemini XT w/ Matrix Technology.
