Mount Vernon FR is expanding its collection of flame resistant (FR) FlexTex fabrics. The FlexTex line is engineered with stretch for increased comfort and mobility, but with no reduction in FR protection or durability. The flex program now includes six denim and four piece-dyed FR fabrics. Many of the fabrics were developed in conjunction with stylists at apparel manufacturers to provide optimal comfort and stretch in the resulting garments, while capturing the authentic look and characteristics of traditional non-stretch denim.

FlexTex fabrics are made using an elastomeric fibre that adds mobility to fabric, so workers experience increased range of motion in their FR apparel. Most FlexTex fabrics can stretch from 12 to 15 per cent, but the latest Mount Vernon FR fabric developments incorporate TreFlex yarn, which may allow as much as 20 per cent stretch, says the manufacturer. Treflex, a hybrid yarn, provides excellent stretch properties and shrinkage control. The expanded offering of FlexTex fabric constructions includes twill, canvas and oxford, and a variety of desirable vintage appearances can be achieved through increased yarn character and slub effects.

Mount Vernon FR FlexTex fabrics meet the performance requirements of ASTM F1506 and are NFPA 2112 component recognized.
