Bulwark Launches iQ Series™ Of Comfortable FR Apparel

Bulwark — a Nashville, Tenn.-based manufacturer of safety apparel and a division of VF Corp., Greensboro, N.C. — has introduced the iQ Series™ of comfortable, flame-resistant (FR) apparel for workers in the electric utility, oil and gas, emerging energy, and manufacturing industries.
 
Bulwark partnered with Spartanburg-based Milliken & Company, which developed the yarns, fabrics and chemistry used in the garments in the apparel line. The specially designed fabric technology provides mobility, softness, durability, breathability and moisture-wicking properties in addition to protection from flash fires, arc flash and similar dangers, according to the company.
 
“Together with Bulwark, we have developed a scientific breakthrough — improved molecular technology that fuses total comfort with protection for FR wearers,” said Jack Spoon, business manager, workwear fabrics, Milliken & Company.
 
The iQ Series currently includes six knits and three wovens offered in men’s and women’s styles, and Bulwark plans to expand the line in the future.
