About

CARFIBEX is a brand-new fabric brought to you by the elite team of scientists and clothing industry professionals of Iron Ocean. Originally CARFIBEX was engineered for both tactical and emergency services applications, we needed to produce an extremely soft and lightweight garment that could be worn for extended periods with enhanced thermal capabilities allowing for less bulk to slow the wearer down. 

  Due to extended operations in close working environments, CARFIBEX was engineered to incorporate advanced antimicrobial properties reducing the opportunity for bacteria build up and unwanted odour.    

Utilising only the highest quality Cashmere we provide a far superior warmth and softness to Merino Wool. The addition of Carbon Fibre promotes advanced anti-static properties preventing static shocks and discomfort unlike the heavily synthetic garments of our competitors.  

Ensuring only elite branded Lycra embodies the garment construction we can demonstrate superior elasticity the key advantage is that the elastic properties will not wear away after multiple wash/dry cycles.  

Micro-modals provide advanced moisture management wicking away sweat for enhanced comfort to the wearer. The hollow fibre structure adds significant heat retention and warmth during periods of prolonged exposure to the cold. The fine knit structure of the garment using the Iron Ocean proprietary design promotes a constant body temperature profile.

 Temperature is scientifically proven to influence muscle physiology. When muscle temperature drops below 32 degrees Celsius less energy is required to cause muscle tears. Available in both Summer and Winter weight variations we are proud to give you CARFIBEX

Bravery by Design.

The Iron Ocean Mission Statement : 

"We rise and challenge every single setback, every barrier to innovation, we believe when others doubt. 

For you, we are relentless"

Pioneering advancements in engineered garment technologies. We actively seek to drive clothing performance in environments from elite tactical military to the high street.

After extensive academic studies into the effects of the cold in various environments from aquatic to mountain environments we realised it was time for change.

With ground breaking technologies we can remove the need for bulky and restrictive clothing whilst offering superior thermal protection and comfort.

OUR COMPANY:

 Our History:

Our company was formed originally to pioneer research into offshore survival, this culminated in state of the art self heating textiles and a product we named the "Centurion 3" offshore survival garment. (Not Available For This Campaign)

During the Centurion 3 creation we developed a state of the art fabric designed to retain heat and manage moisture, the fabric had to be comfortable to wear for long periods below survival suits and CARFIBEX was born.

 CORPORATE:

 CARFIBEX BASE LAYER:

 PROTECTOR PIN:

 Iron Ocean was founded in April 2015 by Simon Lamont an engineer and design enthusiast. Deeply saddened by the Super Puma helicopter incident in April of 2009 Simon turned his focus on to smart textiles for the sole purpose of saving lives and preventing tragedy.

With no start up capital and no savings Simon began entering pitching competitions to raise money for his product development. Unable to afford fuel and public transport these were very hard times.

Simon was soon to inspire the interest of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre of Aberdeen, The business gateway and Scottish Enterprise.

With a fantastic team of advisors and now start up funding sufficient to move forward Iron Ocean was born. Simon enlisted an elite team of academics and scientists from the Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, along with industry experts and elite professionals to join the cause.

Our brand:

Our brand is aimed at the dedicated, our badge represents those that understand the need for dedication, resilliance and commitment. We are where you turn when it is time to get serious.

It doesn't matter if you are scaling a mountain, cutting through the waves or fighting for first place. We are here innovating for you, our warriors.

Our logo Explained:

Our Mask - Gladiators were once slaves forced to fight for their lives in an environment largely out with their control. They had no choice but to summon great strength and resilience knowing if they did not protect themselves nobody else would.

We selected this emblem as a reminder that in the most hostile environments, in the most unwinnable situations and against all odds a special few will rise.

Our Waves: The Ocean has the capacity to be the most powerful force on earth, Its power in large unequalled. It will not be stopped, it will not be contained. We have those attributes they are called will power, resilience and determination.

IRON OCEAN = STRENGTH & POWER.
