12 Tex-Shield, Inc. BLÜCHER GmbH Highest available activated carbon content: 180 g/m 2 + Highest adsorption capacity + No significant desorption + Extended wearing time + Full protection after extended laundering

13 Tex-Shield, Inc. BLÜCHER GmbH Accessibility of SARATOGA Accessibility of SARATOGA durable fixation to the textile carrier = Free accessibility for chemical agents = Rapid & firm adsorption High mechanical durability

14 Tex-Shield, Inc. BLÜCHER GmbH SARATOGA filter material Adsorber Carrier fabric Non woven Active Sweat Management System

15 Tex-Shield, Inc. BLÜCHER GmbH = Lowest heat stress = Lowest heat stress even in hot and humid climates even in hot and humid climates + Low thickness (< 1 mm) + High air permeability + High sweat buffering capacity + Low water vapour and thermal resistance + High flexibility (Pumping Effect)

16 Tex-Shield, Inc. BLÜCHER GmbH Difficult to predict and estimate if and when chemical weapons are used Instability of political regimes and threat by terrorist groups Suitability of protective clothing in extreme climates and climatic zones Longer wearing time of protective clothing on lower protection levels
