TenCate Protective Fabrics has received a new order for TenCate Defender M protective fabric for 10,000 additional uniforms for use in a continued user trial for Combat Uniforms of the Australian Defence Forces.

TenCate already delivered TenCate Defender M flame resistant fabric for an extensive user trial in theatre by the Australian Defence Force in May of 2011. This TenCate Defender M FR fabric was also recently chosen, out of over fifty submissions, by the US Army as the only material to be used in its Flame Resistant Army Combat Uniform (FR ACU) program.

Proven performance
Since 2007, TenCate Defender M fabrics have repeatedly been chosen by the US Army and US Marine Corps for ground troops in the FR ACU and Marine Corp's Flame Resistant Organizational Gear (FROG) programs.

TenCate Defender M fabrics are made from a unique fiber blend that includes Lenzing FR® Rayon. As the leader in inherently flame resistant materials, TenCate Protective Fabrics also provides fabrics used in other American programs such as Inclement Weather Combat Shirts (IWCS), Army Aircrew Combat Uniforms (A2CU), Improved Combat Vehicle Coveralls (ICVC), Navy Shipboard Jackets, Army Flash Hoods and several others.

TenCate Protective Fabrics is a world leader in the design, development, production and commercialization of protective and safety fabrics for industry, services, firefighting and defense. TenCate Protective Fabrics has establishments in North America, Europe, South America and Asia.

Royal Ten Cate (TenCate) is a multinational company which combines textile technology with related chemical processes and material technology in the development and production of functional materials with distinctive characteristics. Products of TenCate are sold worldwide.
