Comfortable protection

TenCate Protective Fabrics develops and produces protective, flame-retardant and flame-resistant fabrics and fabric systems (multi-layer).

It is important to specify the best flame-resistant fabric for clothing. Not every customer, however, has sufficient knowledge of this. In order to increase that knowledge, also where this relates to statutory standards and requirements, end-users are approached directly. During this interaction TenCate products are brought to their notice; a list is drawn up of the risks and standards, together with aspects such as corporate identity, comfort, durability and price. In this way end-user marketing plays a pivotal role in linking R&D, sales and the market. The R&D employees in the US and Europe cooperate closely in the development of fabrics and fabric systems.

With its end-user marketing in the United States, TenCate Protective Fabrics presents itself as ‘the leader in performance’. This is because it is the only manufacturer to combine in its fabrics four essential characteristics: affordability, comfort, protection and excellent durability. TenCate Protective Fabrics is here deemed to be the global leader in inherently flame-resistant fabrics for army uniforms.
