Tecasafe 360+ is an inherently flame-resistant stretch fabric that has just been launched by TenCate Protective Fabrics and further blurs the line between workwear and casualwear.

By combining a proprietary blend of inherent FR materials with the stretch qualities of Xlance fibres, Tecasafe 360+ meets the demands of FR-textile-wearing professionals for fabrics that keep them safe while being extremely confortable.

“Adding stretch technology to inherent FR apparel represents a defining moment for a world of end-users who rely on FR fabrics to stay safe and comfortable on the job,” said Michael Laton, the company’s VP of global strategy and innovation.”

Available throughout the American, European, and Asian-Pacific markets, the world release of Tecasafe 360+ represents the company’s first global product launch – a key achievement in meeting the textile maker’s five-year strategic plan.

With global commercialisation underway, multilingual information and media on the landmark FR fabric is now available for all audiences within the Tecasafe 360+ Virtual Experience.

As the leading global producer of protective fabrics, generations of industry professionals throughout industrial safety, fire, healthcare, military, and police rely on the company’s fabrics.
