The “Thermartex®” launch product is the “Bedding Blanket”. It can be used on it's own or on top of other bedding, is showerproof and suitable for use in any dry environment both indoors and outdoors. Measuring approximately 1.6m x 2m and weighing only 200g the aluminized woven rip-stop nylon blanket is highly breathable and reflects 75% of radiated body heat. It is ideal where thermal performance, weight and packing size are important. It is primarily intended for use as a camping blanket, travel blanket, sleeping bag or normal bed cover, but has many other applications. The latest Mk3 version is more robust (especially when damp or wet) than previous versions.

The blanket should be kept away from fire and other sources of ignition. It should also be kept away from salt and other chemicals as these may damage the heat reflective coating. It is not suitable for use as a Emergency/Survival blanket.
Note: When necessary the blanket may be gently hand washed in cold water. It can also be washed (by itself) in a domestic washing machine using a gentle cold cycle. In both cases do not use cleaning agents/detergents etc. Alternatively it may be cleaned professionally using the widely available and environmentally friendly “Green Earth®” process. "Thermartex®" accepts no responsibility for damage resulting from washing.
