PBI Performance Products

PBI

PROTECTION. COMFORT. DURABILITY. Those are the reasons PBI-blended fabrics have been the preferred choice of large active departments across the Americas and around the world for over 30 years. Everything we do is making products to protect firefighters from a worst-case situation. Consider it firefighter insurance: better to have and not need than to need and not have.
PBI is the trade name for polybenzimidazole. PBI Performance Products, Inc. is the sole producer of PBI fiber in the world. All PBI fiber is made in America, in our plant in Rock Hill, SC. PBI fabrics have been used in the fire service for over 30 years and continue to be used in other markets such as industrial/electrical, aerospace, military, and motorsports. From the time PBI was introduced to NASA for the Apollo missions in the late 1960s, it has been regarded as the best protection available for high-heat and flame applications.
