TenCate Protective Fabrics Records Order From Arkema For TenCate Tecasafe® Plus

NIJVERDAL, The Netherlands — May 1, 2014 — TenCate Protective Fabrics has received an order from the French chemicals group Arkema for the supply of TenCate Tecasafe® Plus XL-9300 for protective clothing for its employees in Europe. This relates to an order for a total of 23,000 items of clothing over a period of five years. Delivery of the fabric for the first 10,000 sets has already begun.

From the different types of fabric from a number of manufacturers, the company selected TenCate Tecasafe® Plus XL-9300. This fabric performed the highest in terms of protection and wearer comfort. Wearing trials in twelve European operations of Arkema had a positive result. Clothing manufacturers were then asked only to include this fabric in their tender. Mulliez-Flory emerged from this selection as the best.

The order involves approximately a total of 60,000 meters of TenCate Tecasafe® Plus in 2014 and 2015. Of this, 35,000 meters have already been delivered to Mulliez-Flory. This French clothing manufacturer will supply a large number of the operations of Arkema  (formerly a part of Total) at the beginning of September 2014 with 10,000 items of work clothing. Fabrics for a second series of garments are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year. TenCate Tecasafe® Plus satisfies a number of standards, including both European NEN-EN-ISO 11612, 1149-3 and 13034 type 6 and the North American NFPA 2112 standards for industrial use.
