New lightweight fabric in TenCate Defender™ M collection

TenCate Protective Fabrics has further expanded its product portfolio with a new lightweight fabric – TenCate Defender™ M - DP 9180 (180 g/m2). This inherently heat- and flame-resistant fabric is used in garments for professionals operating in the colours dark blue and black, such as naval personnel and military-police or special-squad officers. TenCate already has a lightweight fabric in its collection for this field – the 210 g/m2 DP 9210. This fabric has been purchased for a number of years by the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) for Norwegian Naval protective clothing. But now we have an even lighter version.

Defender M
Exceptional properties
TenCate Defender™ M – DP 9180 is a heat- and flame-resistant fabric that provides protection against heat and fire, from Molotov cocktails, for instance, or other flammable substances. This is combined with a high degree of comfort and durability. The fabric is cool, breathable and moisture-regulating thanks to the application of Lenzing® FR Rayon fibres in the fabric's structure. 
What's more, the fabric is durable, very wear-resistant and is exceptionally colour fast. To provide protection against foul weather, such as wind and rain, the new DP 9180 fabric can also easily be coated with a Hydro-Control™ membrane.
Complete product portfolio
The TenCate Defender™ M collection now meets the needs of end users even better than before. For protective clothing with camouflage pattern or the lighter unicolour variant (such as olive green and tan), we have developed the DM 9210 (210 g/m2) and DM 9180 (180 g/m2) versions. For darker colours we have the DP 9210 (210 g/m2) and DP 9180 (180 g/m2). This means TenCate Protective Fabrics supplies a wide range of solutions for the protection of defence and police personnel.
