Union City, Ga.-based TenCate Protective Fabrics Americas — manufacturer of inherently
flame-resistant (FR) protective apparel fabrics, and a division of the Netherlands-based Royal Ten
Cate’s TenCate Protective Fabrics business — has introduced TenCate Tecasafe® Plus knit fabric.
Offered in comfortable and casual-looking jersey and piqué knits, the shirting fabric can serve as
both a baselayer and outerlayer fabric and may be worn in conjunction with other protective fabrics
to provide maximum electric arc and flash fire protection. TenCate Tecasafe Plus knits are designed
according to customers’ specifications and can withstand repeated industrial laundering.
TenCate Tecasafe Plus fabric originally was engineered in Europe but later was modified to
meet the specific requirements of the North American market. The fabric offers comfort and
durability as well as inherent flame resistance at an affordable price, TenCate reports.
