Kermel, DyStar Develop FR Camouflage Fabrics
Kermel, France, and DyStar, Germany, have joined forces to develop new flame-retardant (FR)
camouflage fabrics made of a blend of Kermel® meta-aramid fiber and FR viscose. The cooperation
allows both companies to create a broad range of garments, for use primarily in the military
sector, in compliance with the European EN531 standard. The fabrics meet both visual and infrared
detection requirements for military camouflage, according to Kermel. Other features include
exceptional comfort and colorfastness.
