TenCate Protective Fabrics Introduces Tecasafe® One – A New Era of IFR for All

TenCate Protective Fabrics announces a new technical textile into the industrial market: Tecasafe One.

The latest word in lightweight protection, Tecasafe One is the newest addition to the Tecasafe family of products. Tecasafe One is the direct response to the industry’s demand for affordable, high-performance protective fabrics for PPE. Developed for use in challenging environments, Tecasafe One delivers comfort and PPE 2 level protection a fabric that weighs less than six ounces per square yard. It’s NFPA 2112 certified and NFPA 70E compliant to offer a wide range of protection.

Tecasafe One is set to change the market in a variety of ways. It will be introduced at a price that’s competitive with treated FR cotton fabrics. It’s been engineered to do what cotton fabrics do, but better – it’s two times more breathable than cotton, Tecasafe One features an inherent blend that means the FR properties will never wash out or wear away. Its breathability is unmatched and it will stand up better to repeated launderings which means more value per wear.

Using the same base technology that made Tecasafe Plus such a great success, Tecasafe One is set to become the first step on any end user’s journey to premium protection and comfort.

“We really wanted to develop an entry level fabric that delivers the same type of comfort, protection and longevity that our customers and end users expect from us,” said Michael Laton, Vice President of Global Strategy, Marketing and Innovation for TenCate Protective Fabrics. “We believe that everyone deserves protection and we wanted to make sure that they can get it at a price that manageable to them, without sacrificing performance.”
