Action Factory PBI Long UnderwearPBI (Polybenzimidazole) is a well known fabric used extensively in the military, aerospace and fire fighting applications. This synthetic fiber has a very high melting point and does not readily ignite.
The PBI fabric combined with the Action Factory unique garment design makes it a perfect light weight, thin "shell" layer for the stunt performer.
The Action Factory PBI Bottom features an elastic waist with drawstring, stocking feet and ankle cuffs that give the performer a choice to either cut off the stocking feet and keep just a cuff at the ankle (traditional). Or cut away the cuff and have a stocking design that minimizes separation in the ankle during performance.
The fabric is light weight and can be fragile. Care should be taken while dressing as to reduce the risk of tearing material. This garment is designed to be used as a "shell" in the Action Factory suggested layer process with Action Factory HydroGel.
