MMI Textiles, Brooklyn, Ohio, recently inked an agreement with Milliken & Company to supply Milliken Tegris® thermoplastic composite fabric. Tegris is a lightweight, but stiff material design to protect from blasts and projectiles. It also is suitable for plate carriers and belt applications. MMI is positioned as a Tegris expert and can now offer the material at quantities previously unavailable.
“Being able to offer Tegris and partner with a leader in the textile industry like Milliken further illustrates MMI’s commitment to provide innovative products to the end customer, especially those that protect our warfighters,” said Joey Smith, MMI’s director of business development.
