Resilient FR fabric
Mount Vernon FR launches the newest additions to its Resilience line of flame resistant fabrics. Purpose-built to deliver significantly higher abrasion resistance, the new fabrics – Arapaho R, Hopi N2X and Navajo N2X – feature cotton blended with high-tenacity nylon or Kevlar for increased durability. Arapaho R is a 7.5-ounce cotton, nylon and Kevlar blend. The filling yarn of the fabric, which rests against the wearer’s skin, is comprised of cotton, making the garment feel soft and comfortable on the inside, while maintaining a tough and highly protected exterior. With a durable exterior incorporating nylon and Kevlar, the fabric is perfect for industries requiring flame resistant garments that can stand up to intense wear-and-tear, says the manufacturer. Hopi N2X and Navajo N2X fabrics are cotton blends with 25 per cent high-tenacity nylon, which contributes to more durable flame resistant clothing that doesn’t sacrifice comfort. With two times the nylon, N2X fabrics have been shown to withstand up to three times the abrasion compared to conventional fabrics. The higher nylon content also serves to aid evaporative cooling and faster drying times. Hopi N2X is an 8.5-ounce basket weave for maximum tear strength, making it ideal for industries that want lightweight, durable FR clothing with exceptional wear life. Navajo N2X is a slightly heavier version weighing 9.5 ounces, designed for flame resistant bib overalls or outerwear. These fabrics meet all industry standards including NFPA 70E, NFPA 2112 and ASTM F-1506; and are produced in Mount Vernon FR’s vertically integrated manufacturing facility in Trion, Ga. – from fibre to finished FR fabrics.
