Mount Vernon FR Expands Resilience® Fabric Line

Trion, Ga.-based Mount Vernon FR has added Arapaho R, Hopi N2X and Navajo N2X fabrics to its Resilience® line of flame resistant fabrics. Engineered to offer increased abrasion resistance, the fabrics meet all industry standards including NFPA 70E, NFPA 2112 and ASTM F-1506. Arapaho R is a 7.5-ounce cotton/nylon/Kevlar® blend; and 8.5-ounce Hopi N2X and 9.5-ounce Navajo N2X fabrics feature cotton blended with 25-percent high-tenacity nylon.

“Our survey of 400 environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals found that the greatest challenge they experience is the need for more durable flame resistant clothing,” said Mike Woods, vice president of FR fabrics for Mount Vernon FR.
