New TECGEN FR jeans designed for industrial workers
Aug '10
Ashburn Hill Corp.'s TECGEN brand team has announced a new line of TECGEN FR jeans that are specifically designed to provide industrial workers full-time protection and comfort. TECGEN brand designers turned to INVISTA's CORDURA Denim fabric to add exceptional durability to its latest line of NFPA 70E certified TECGEN brand jeans.

“We are excited to launch this new product line at this year's VPPPA Conference. Like other products within the TECGEN fiber family, the new TECGEN FR jeans incorporate electric arc and flash-fire protection for enhanced industrial worker protection,” said David Osbon, global director of sales and marketing for Ashburn Hill Corp. “Ashburn Hill Corporation is focused on delivering comfortable protective garments people will want to wear, and TECGEN FR jeans with CORDURA Denim fabric are designed to achieve this goal.”

Based on an intimate blend of cotton and INVISTA's T420 nylon 6.6 fiber, CORDURA Denim fabric retains the authentic look and feel of traditional 100 percent cotton denim, but with added abrasion resistance and toughness that doesn't compromise comfort or style.

“The TECGEN FR jeans with CORDURA Denim fabric are the perfect combination of high-quality performance and exceptional durability in protective apparel,” said Laurie Kronenberg, NA workwear and protective apparel end use marketing manager. “These jeans offer the reliable and versatile heritage of the CORDURA brand and the exceptional protection of the TECGEN brand, all in the same wearable jeans. They get the job done.”

Ashburn Hill Corp. will debut the TECGEN FR jeans with CORDURA Denim fabric at the 26th Annual National Voluntary Protection Programs Participants' Association (VPPPA) Expo alongside the core TECGEN SELECT protective apparel product line. TECGEN SELECT garments made with patented, bi-regional TECGEN fiber technology take comfort and moisture-management in flame-resistant protective apparel to the next level in FR garments through their lightweight fabric, high air permeability and wicking action that transport moisture away from the skin.

The VPPPA Conference takes place from Monday, Aug. 23 to Thursday, Aug. 26 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Come learn more about TECGEN FR jeans at Booth# 611.
