AMTEX TC Collection of Tencel Blends
Trion, Ga. – Mount Vernon FR announced its newest flame resistant fabric, AMTEX® TC. AMTEX TC is a collection of cotton and Tencel® blends created for Total Comfort, and the new line addresses the challenge of maximizing both comfort and durability in protective workwear fabrics. AMTEX TC combines comfort, strength and a high level of protection. Currently offered in 7.9-ounce and 8.4-ounce twill, AMTEX TC fabrics are unique in that they increase both comfort and durability without sacrificing the protection demands of the FR industry. One of the primary fibers in AMTEX TC fabrics, Tencel, is a cellulosic fiber similar to cotton, but with added strength to create protective fabrics that withstand tough jobs. Despite their strength, AMTEX TC fabrics feel lighter than they actually are, which enhances the comfort of garments made with the fabric. Enhanced comfort increases the probability that workers will wear garments correctly, and reduces risk of injury due to improper wear.
