Cotton, Tencel blend FR
Mount Vernon FR has announced its newest innovation in the flame resistant fabric industry, AMTEX TC. Currently offered in 7.9-ounce and 8.4-ounce twill, AMTEX TC fabrics are a collection of cotton and Tencel blends that increase both comfort and durability without sacrificing the protection demands of the FR industry, says the manufacturer. One of the primary fibres in AMTEX TC fabrics, Tencel, is a cellulosic fibre similar to cotton, but with added strength to create protective fabrics that withstand tough jobs. Despite their strength, AMTEX TC fabrics feel lighter than they actually are, which enhances the comfort of garments made with the fabric. Enhanced comfort increases the probability workers will wear garments correctly, and reduces risk of injury due to improper wear, says Mount Vernon FR. AMTEX TC fabrics meet the standards for NFPA 70E, ASTM F1506 and NFPA 2112. www.mvmfr.com
