TenCate Protective Fabrics Americas, Union City, Ga., is collaborating with Dearborn, Mich.-based
Carhartt to develop a line of flame-resistant (FR) workwear garments featuring TenCate Tecasafe®
The fabric offers comfort and durability as well as inherent flame resistance – including
arc and flash fire protection lasting twice as long as FR-treated cotton fabrics – at an affordable
price, TenCate reports. Carhartt will introduce workwear featuring the fabric in August 2012 and
initially will offer the garments in two weights and colors.
