    US Congress action on FR rayon fiber is positive step for US producers of TenCate Defender™ M Fabric for US Military

    TenCate applauds lawmakers’ approval of legislation to protect troops and ensure supply of flame-resistant uniforms.
    Congress included language in the fiscal year 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to eliminate future restrictions on the use of FR (flame-resistant) rayon fiber by the US military. The FR rayon fiber is a critical component in the flame-resistant uniforms worn by American troops in combat. These specialized uniforms provide substantially improved protection from burn injuries caused by the effects of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The uniforms are made using TenCate Defender™ M, a fabric manufactured by American workers in numerous states.
