    TenCate introduces military combat fabrics for firefighter turnout gear

    TenCate Protective Fabrics in Europe is launching new thermal barrier and liner fabrics for use in firefighting turnout gear, based on the TenCate Defender™ M flame-resistant fabrics already used for military combat uniforms. These new fabrics for firefighter turnout gear use TenCate Coolderm™ technology to provide better insulation and protection from heat while offering an evaporative cooling effect to keep the skin cooler and drier. This contributes to a reduction in the heat stress suffered by firefighters and further increases their overall safety. The introduction will be at the forthcoming Interschutz 2015 international trade fair in Hannover, Germany.
