Polartec Launches FR Fabric System

Polartec LLC, Lawrence, Mass. - manufacturer of Polartec® performance fabrics for consumer and military apparel - has introduced the Polartec flame-resistant (FR) total layering system, offered as an alternative to what the company describes as typically bulky, uncomfortable FR apparel. According to Polartec, the system is durable, lightweight and breathable; dries quickly; and does not interfere with range of motion.

The system comprises a Power Dry® FR base-layer fabric that wicks moisture from the body and dries quickly; a Power Stretch® FR mid-layer; a Thermal FR® lightweight thermal-insulation layer; and a Wind Pro® FR weather-protective outer layer. The fabrics have undergone independent testing and have passed relevant industry standards, the company reports.
