Bulwark Launches iQ Series™ Of Comfortable FR Apparel
Safety apparel manufacturer Bulwark, Nashville, Tenn. — 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.
Spartanburg-based Milliken & Company developed the yarns, fabrics and chemistry used in the garments. The technology provides mobility, softness, durability, breathability and moisture-wicking properties as well as protection from flash fires, arc flash and similar dangers, according to Bulwark.
“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.
