Lenzing Continues to Supply Fibers to US Army

August 23, 2012

Flame-resistant fibers from Austria of superior quality

Austrian Lenzing is to continue to supply flame-resistant specialty fibers for a new generation of U.S. Army combat uniforms with the signature of U.S. President Obama formally approving the National Defense Authorization Act on 31 December 2011.
Lenzing exports flame-resistant fibers from Austria to its American partner TenCate Protective Fabrics (TenCate), a leading manufacturer of flame-resistant fabrics for the U.S. Armed Forces. In principle, only clothing products Made in USA are allowed for the U.S. Army. Up until now, fabrics made from Lenzing FR fibers were supplied on the basis of a limited exemption granted in 2008.
"In contrast to other fibers, Lenzing flame-resistant fibers not only offer the stipulated flame and heat protection properties, but also comfort and good breathability and last but not least, the fast and reliable delivery capability of sufficient quantities on an industrial scale. The close cooperation of TenCate and Lenzing combines excellence in the fabric development and production of flame-resistant fibers," Lenzing says.
In August 2007 TenCate was officially commended by the United States Marine Corps for superior excellence in delivering an outstanding level of quality in its products and services in response to the demands of the U.S. Armed Forces.
The Lenzing Group is an international group of companies with headquarters in Austria, production sites in all major markets and a global network of sales and marketing offices. Lenzing provides the global textile and nonwovens industry with high-quality man-made cellulose fibers based on the renewable resource wood.
