Combat professionals face a huge number of dangerous risks every time they go outside the wire.

That's why TenCate BALLISTIC knit fabrics were developed to provide maximum protection. Aside from the usual perils of combat, new weapons, such as improvised explosive devices or IEDs, have changed the nature of modern warfare and created new dangers.

The enemy, sometimes lacking equipment and resources, will use any kind of metal object they can find for use as shrapnel for IEDs.

Fragments expelled during an explosion become potentially deadly missiles that can cause serious injury or even death. TenCate BALLISTIC fabrics were engineered to cut down on serious injuries.

By using aramid fibers, the fabric has the strength to stand up to the challenge and the added bonus of being flame resistant.

TenCate BALLISTIC knit fabrics are currently being used by the U.S. Army in their Protective Undergarment (PUG). The interlock knit design provides comfort as well as protection and durability


TenCate scientists take every step to make sure that these FR fabrics are the strongest they can be. Through innovative fiber blends and specialized weaves and construction, TenCate delivers fabrics that have the strength to get the tough jobs done.

All fabrics manufactured by TenCate are inherently flame-resistant. There’s no chemical finish that makes them FR, no treatment; nothing. The flame resistance is built right into the fabric itself. It will never wash out or wear away.

Tough jobs call for tough fabrics that stand up to the challenge. TenCate fabrics can take it. Engineered for maximum protection and comfort that never quits, these fabrics are built to last.
