Bulwark Is Adopting FR TENCEL® And Cotton Denim Jeans From Mount Vernon FR

bedFBMount Vernon FR continues to expand its selection and variety of flame resistant (FR) denim fabrics with the introduction of Phoenix TC denim. Phoenix TC denim is a new TENCEL® and cotton blend, developed to enhance the softness and comfort of FR jeans without a tradeoff in durability. Bulwark, a leading manufacturer of FR apparel, is adopting this new technology in upcoming denim jeans.

 TENCEL®and cotton are ideal partners for denim.

Despite the added strength, denim made with TENCEL® feels lighter than its true weight. The smooth surface of TENCEL® makes fabrics inherently softer and more comfortable without the reliance on chemical softeners, which may not be durable.

“We are committed to designing, developing and distributing the best FR garments, without compromise,” says Robert Grimes, Managing Director for Bulwark. “Phoenix TC denim adds a greater level of comfort to the durability and protection that are expected from our FR denim jeans. Bulwark garments made with Phoenix TC denim will be a great option for our electric utility and oil and gas customers, and they will provide real solutions to some of the challenges being faced by safety professionals.”
