SSM, NSA Partner To Introduce PRO-CFR® 12 CAL

SSM Industries Inc., Spring City, Tenn. -- a manufacturer of flame-resistant (FR), cut-resistant and thermal fabrics for military, fire and rescue and industrial applications -- and National Safety Apparel (NSA), Cleveland -- a manufacturer of protective apparel for industrial safety applications -- have partnered to introduce a lightweight, high-arc-rated FR cotton fabric for use in protective apparel for the electrical and utility industries.

PRO-CFR® 12 CAL weighs 6.25 ounces per square yard and registers an arc thermal protection value of 12 calories per square centimeter in a single garment layer. The knit fabric is produced at SSM's plant and made by NSA into garments in both T-shirt and Henley styles.

"SSM is proud to align with NSA. Both companies are innovative and dynamic," said Steve Smith, vice president, sales and marketing, SSM. "We are working together to bring PRO-CFR 12 CAL, a cutting-edge fabric option, to the market. It is important for us to work with a garment manufacturer like NSA who shares our vision in the safety industry. Safety protection and comfort have been the goal in creating this flame resistant clothing option."
