Codet's Big Bill brand, a leading manufacturer of work wear for the oil, gas, petrochemical, electrical utility, power generation, mining and industrial markets, has partnered with Polartec to produce a full layering system of high performance garments using Polartec's Flame Resistant (FR) fabric technology.

Big Bill is launching the "Big Bill Active FR" line of full Polartec Flame Resistant layering solutions in the US and Canada. This layering system includes baselayer shirts made using Polartec Power Dry FR, the industry's best moisture-managing next-to-skin fabric. Midlayer jackets and hoodies are made using highly breathable and lightweight Polartec Thermal FR insulation. Big Bill Active FR outerwear and weather protection garments are made using Polartec Wind Pro FR, which is four times more wind resistant than regular fleece, and Polartec Power Shield FR. The launch of Polartec Power Shield revolutionized outerwear, providing a unique combination of real weather resistance and breathability. Big Bill has become the first manufacturer to offer this soft shell technology in a flame resistant garment with Polartec Power Shield FR.

"Big Bill understands quality, performance, and the need to be on the cutting edge of innovation both in fabric selection and garment design", says Michael Batson, Polartec's Global FR Business Manager. "Polartec has become the first high performance fabric technology company in the world to offer everything from lightweight high performance FR baselayers to extreme weather protection layering choices. We've worked with Codet to provide FR layering solutions that maximize comfort and performance."

Polartec FR fabrics are inherently flame resistant, tested in both in-house and independent state-of-the-art laboratories, and pass relevant industry certifications.

Big Bill workwear brand is recognized worldwide as an industry leader in fit, durability, comfort and protection. Since 1946 Big Bill has been a market leader in flame resistant garment manufacturing in North America with operation in both Canada and the U.S.

Polartec LLC is the developer, manufacturer and marketer of Polartec performance fabrics.
