Velcro's printed loop technology meets need of military

Jan '12
Velcro USA Inc, a designer and manufacturer of hook and loop technology with products currently in use by US military, has announced its official launch of printed loop technology at Outdoor Retailer Winter 2012. This highly technical product allows loop product to blend with the camouflage patterns of soldier and professional user uniforms, thereby improving overall performance of clothing and individual equipment.

Printed loop technology has been a priority for Velcro USA Inc. since it was determined by the Department of Defense that signature management is paramount for our men and women in uniform. Focusing on every opportunity for improvement in signature management necessitated the development of previously unavailable printed loop that would blend seamlessly into combat uniforms.

Velcro USA Inc. has been working with the DoD for several decades to develop hook and loop technologies that directly meet unique mission needs. The company has recently invested significant energy in a robust research effort to arrive at next-generation products that improve performance of uniform and equipment for our soldiers and end-users. Notably, printing on loop type material is extraordinarily difficult, particularly when ensuring that the stringent technical requirements of the DoD are met.

"This printed loop technology is a breakthrough product that greatly enhances soldier performance in combat and meets a direct need of the US military. We are extremely proud at Velcro USA Inc. to work with the DoD to develop solutions for the needs of our men and women in uniform," said Will Tagye, Senior Marketing Manager-Government for Velcro USA Inc. "Our employees in New Hampshire are dedicated to manufacturing in the United States and ensuring that we do not lose the capability to develop and field these vital technologies for our soldiers and professional users. This is just the beginning of many new exciting products to expect out of Velcro USA Inc."

The new printed hook and loop technology is available to DoD contractors and other tactical and commercial customers now. Interested parties may see the technology firsthand on several new pieces of equipment at the Shooting Hunting and Outdoors Show (SHOT) in Las Vegas, January 17-19, 2012 or at the Velcro USA Inc. Booth, No 155-317, at Outdoor Retailer Winter 2012 taking place in Salt Lake City, January 19-21, 2012.

Velcro USA Inc is a worldwide leader in fastening systems offering a wide range of solutions from standard hook and loop to complete finished products. With over 50 years of experience, the company is proud of its heritage in innovation and has over 300 active patents.
