Find the TenCate Twins and Win

FDIC 2013 TenCate TwinsFor the eagle-eyed firefighters among the crowds at FDIC 2013, spot the TenCate Twins and win!

Just look for the pair that matches in TenCate blue (and maybe a little orange). You'll find them wandering the showroom floor throughout FDIC 2013 in Indianapolis from April 25 to 27. Go up to them and simply say, "Alotta TenCate."

Not sure how to say it? It's pronounced, "a-lot-ta tin-ka-ta." (Don't worry if you don't quite get it right; you'll still win!)

One of the dynamic duo will hand you a pass to head straight to booth #723, where you'll not only see the best in outer shells and thermal barrier fabrics, but you'll receive a very special prize for spotting one of the prize-winning pairs.

Why the TenCate Twins?

Composite systems provide the three-layer protection in turnouts. TenCate manufactures the fabrics for two of those layers: Outer shells and thermal barriers.

TenCate Millenia™ XTL is our most innovative, lightweight outer shell. Millenia XTL has all the strength and thermal protection of its 7.5-ounce counterpart but in a 6.0-ounce per square yard fabric that uses a unique blend of para-aramid and PBO fibers, resisting tears and abrasions.

TenCate also offers Advance Ultra®, a 7.5-ounce rip-stop weave with a blend of DuPont™ Kevlar® and Nomex® along with PBO to provide extra strong performance at value pricing.

When it comes to thermal barriers, TenCate Defender® M SL2 or Quantum3D SL2i. Both have inherent wicking, slick facecloths for greater comfort and ease of donning and doffing with an excellent balance of thermal protection and total heat loss.

Finding TenCate at FDIC 2013

TenCate can be found at booth #723 in the Indiana Convention Center. A few main aisles can be found (highlighted below) to take you directly to the TenCate booth. Just keep an eye out for the TenCate tower.
