MASCOT brands

Stay warm with CLIMASCOT®-lining

Benefit from a lining of the brand CLIMASCOT® Lightweight Insulation. Besides having a high insulating power, CLIMASCOT® gives you a breathable lightweight material that takes up very little room when compressed. The environment has also been considered with CLIMASCOT®, as it is partially made from recycled materials.


Removal of moisture effectively

You give off a lot of heat and moisture when you move around. Preferably, moisture should be dissipated from the body so you don’t get the feeling of being soaked, as this can easily lead to you becoming cold.  The right clothes will help you remain comfortable even with high activity levels, as they quickly lead moisture away from the body.  MASCOT has clothing made from MASCODRY®, which can handle this for you so you can concentrate on work instead.

Quality: 826 - 95% Polyester/5% elastane, (MASCODRY®)


Durability in the cold

Bearnylon® is water and stain resistant, extremely durable and is used primarily as an outer material in MASCOT’s winterwear. Bearnylon® gives products a long life and when combined with a lining, provides insulating properties.

Quality: 620 - 60% cotton/40% nylon


Perfect protection against wind and water

On days with heavy rain you need workwear made from MASCOTEX®.   MASCOTEX® is a fabric with a breathable laminate on the back that makes the material waterproof.  It is certified to EN 343, the European norm for protection against rain.  When MASCOT® makes workwear in MASCOTEX®, all seams are taped so your MASCOTEX® product is 100% waterproof.  It is also breathable so you can work comfortably at a fast pace.

Quality: 025, 650 and 880


Protection against flames and embers

PyroPro® is MASCOT’s anti-static, acid resistant and flame retardant fabric used in the MASCOT® MULTISAFE range. The fabric gets its flame retardant properties from a chemical surface treatment. The fabric also protects against arcs and occasional welding. Products in this fabric are approved according to EN 531/EN ISO 11612 (A1, B1, C1, E1), EN 533/EN ISO 14116 (index 3/50x75° C), EN 1149-3, EN 1149-5, ENV 50354/EN 61482-1-2 (class 1), EN 470-1/EN ISO 11611 and EN 13034.

Quality: 135 - 87% cotton/12% polyamide/1% carbon fibre


Maximum protection against the cold

Thermax® is an insulating, triple layered material developed by MASCOT®. It is used primarily in our thermal underwear as the material is extremely insulating. The fabric is developed for use in very low temperatures and for low activity work in cold environments. It is designed so that the inner polyester layer channels moisture away from the body out to the cotton and modal fibres in the outer layer, so your skin always feels dry. The outer layer of the fabric is also insulating and helps to keep the heat in.

Quality: 380 - 55% polyester/23% modal/22% cotton

Dyneema® - Stronger than steel

Some situations demand extraordinary durability. By using Dyneema® in the kneepad pocket material, MASCOT combines properties such as stretch and extreme durability with low weight. The ultra-strong and very durable fibre Dyneema® helps increase the kneepad pocket’s durability while maintaining the comfort when working in kneeling situations.

Used in a special composition with Kevlar® and CORDURA® on the kneepad pockets.


CORDURA® fabric for everday wear and tear

High durability is crucial when you are working at a fast pace. Holster pockets and ruler pockets have to stand the pressure when tools, nails and screws are taken in and out of the pockets countless times during the day. MASCOT ensures durability by using lots of CORDURA® fabric on all the exposed places, such as kneepad pockets, holster pockets and ruler pockets. CORDURA® fabric is in fact seven times stronger than cotton. We use both 1000D CORDURA® (quality 11) and the lighter 500D CORDURA® (quality 12).

Quality: 11 and 12 - 100% polyamide (CORDURA®, Teflon®, treate)


Sharp Impact Resistance

In some areas your workwear is exposed to extra wear, needing extra reinforcement for your workwear to last a long time.  MASCOT has attached Kevlar® on the vulnerable places, for example, at the bottom of the knife pocket.  Kevlar® is one of the market’s strongest materials when it comes to withstanding sharp impacts, which is why it is used in bullet proof vests.

Used as reinforcement at the knees and in the bottom of pockets


Leading in moisture wicking

COOLMAX® is the market leader with regard to moisture dispersion. Use MASCOT COOLMAX® garments when choosing clothing that is worn close to the skin, i.e. underwear and socks. COOLMAX® quickly transports moisture away from the skin and disperses it through the fabric where it can evaporate quickly. With the help of COOLMAX®, your skin never feels damp and you avoid any undesirable cooling of the body. Choose products that combine COOLMAX® and wool (quality 871) for two functions in one: efficient moisture wicking and extra insulation. Products containing COOLMAX® are soft, easy to wash and quick-drying.

Quality: 350 and 871 - respectively 100% polyester (COOLMAX®) and 80% polyester (COOLMAX®)/20% wool


Cooling, soft and durable workwear

Imagine your workwear having the usual durability and strong quality whilst being cool and soft. This is the feeling you’ll have from our fabric in quality 203, where TENCEL® is used. TENCEL® is a natural, sustainable fibre derived from trees. When used in workwear, TENCEL® is cooling and extremely moisture wicking. MASCOT is one of the first to use TENCEL® in workwear, but it has been used for many years in clothing for elite athletes. Mixed with polyester, TENCEL® provides a very robust fabric.

Quality: 203 - 70% Polyester/30% lyocell (TENCEL®)


Clothing with temperature regulation

The unique material Outlast® was originally developed for NASA's space program.  MASCOT now uses Outlast® as a lining in jackets, and it creates an internal temperature regulating system, so the body always has a constant, comfortable temperature. Excess body heat is absorbed and stored in microcapsules inside the jacket. When the body’s temperature decreases, the heat is released and returned to the body. In this way, temperature is regulated and perspiration is kept in check.

Used in the lining of MASCOT® Frontera


Durable visibility

Teflon® is used in many of MASCOT’s fluorescent products.  Teflon® is a protecting treatment that penetrates into the fibres and repels most water and oil based liquids.  Fluorescent workwear that is dirt repellent is more visible in the surroundings.  Since your visibility is crucial for safety at work, Teflon® is a great invention for those who work in or near traffic or machinery.

Quality: 860, 660 and 470

Footwear brands

Patented Boa® closure system

Boa® is a clever locking system and an alternative to traditional drawstring closures. Boa® consists of a mechanical wheel that is connected to stainless steel laces. Rotate the wheel to lace the footwear and lift the wheel to loosen the laces. Boa® is particularly convenient when you need your shoes on and off several times during the day.


SympaTex® membrane

SympaTex® upper material provides breathable and waterproof footwear by means of a membrane in the material. To comply with the norm for waterproof footwear, the footwear must be able to resist water for at least 12 hours. SympaTex® complies with this norm.


Thinsulate™ Insulation

Thinsulate™ Insulation is an insulating inner liner which is moisture resistant, breathable and keeps your feet warm.


Vibram® rubber sole

Vibram® rubber soles are of very high quality and designed especially for MASCOT safety footwear. Footwear with Vibram® soles give extra value to the wearer, as the soles are very durable and particularly slip resistant.


Canvas - Durable canvas with a rough look

Canvas is a weaving structure that creates a fabric with a rugged, cool look.  Durability is high and in fabric quality 010 (used in both MASCOT® YOUNG and MASCOT® HARDWEAR) there is a bit of stretch in the fabric.  This is particularly noticeable when you kneel, and the trousers give a little.  Quality 010 is 310 g/m², the heaviest of MASCOT’s canvas fabrics in polyester / cotton. Should you require lighter, fabric quality 154, with a weight of 260 g/m², is an attractive alternative.

Quality: 010 - 65% polyester/35% cotton

Cotton - 100 % Natural Material

A fabric of 100% cotton achieves some very special properties because it is a pure natural material. Cotton is soft and very comfortable to wear. It is washable at up to 95 degrees C.  Workwear made from pure cotton is a must for employees that work near embers.

Quality: 630 - 100% cotton

Twill - A great hit

Quality 430 is one of MASCOT’s most sold fabrics.  It is just as useful now as it was 10 years ago, and has a variety of uses for different disciplines in both industry and tradesmen.  A mix of polyester and cotton creates a robust fabric which effectively keeps its colour and shape even after frequent washing and drying. Quality 430, at 310 g/m², is the heaviest of MASCOT’s twill fabrics in polyester / cotton. Should you require lighter, there are several alternatives: Quality 442 with 270 g/m², Quality 330 with 245 g/m², and Quality 230 with 205 g/m².

Quality: 430 - 65% polyester/35% cotton

Quilt - Warm thermal wear

Quilted products are known for being warm and insulating and have, for many years, been used as an insulating layer in many industries. MASCOT thermals are available in several thicknesses and colours.  The quilt consists of three layers - between the two wear-resistant outer layers is a polyester inner layer that provides insulation. The three layers are welded together ultrasonically ensuring fabric of high quality and high durability.

Quality: 300, 370, 450, 490, 590, 707, 905, 997

MASCOT® Multisafe fabric

Multi-protective workwear

Anti-static, acid-resistant, flame-retardant and stain-resistant fabric. The key advantage is that the flame retardant properties are now inherent in the thread from which the fabric is woven and therefore cannot be washed out.  It also provide a more soft and comfortable fabric that is very comfortable to wear. The wear resistance and tear strength is high. Certified to EN ISO 11612 (A1, A2, B1, C1, E1, F1), EN ISO 11611 - cl. 1 - A1, A2, EN 1149-3, EN 1149-5, EN 61482-1-2, EN 13034 and EN ISO 20471 - cl. 2. The winter wear in fabric quality 217 is also breathable, wind- and waterproof and certified to EN 343 and EN 342.

Quality: 216 - 217 - 60% modacrylic/39% cotton/1% carbon fibre
