The AMSOFT finish is applied to Mount Vernon FR fabrics using the Biancalani AIRO 24 machine, which uses a chemical-free softening process to provide a distinct, naturally soft hand and improved drape to the company’s flame resistant fabrics. The AMSOFT process softens fabric at a speed of 40 meters per minute, and can process up to 600 kilograms of fabric per hour.
“Utilizing the latest technology in the industry guarantees that Mount Vernon FR fabrics are the most comfortable fabrics available on the market,” said Mike Woods, vice president of flame resistant fabric sales for Mount Vernon Mills.
“Our AMSOFT finish exemplifies Mount Vernon’s continual pursuit of innovation and added value for our customers, who demand comfort as well as safety in their flame resistant garments”, he adds.
The AMSOFT finish can be applied to the company’s extensive selection of flame resistant protective fabrics in the following six collections:
· AMTEX C100 – 100 percent cotton
· AMTEX PLUS – 88 percent cotton/12 percent nylon blend
· RESILIENCE – 80 percent cotton/20 percent Nomex blend
· RESILIENCE TRIO – Cotton/Nomex/nylon blend
· PHOENIX FR – Flame-resistant denim ranging from 7.5 to 14.75 ounces/square yard
· MY•FR – Custom fabric program that allows customers to tailor flame resistant fabrics to match their unique needs
Mount Vernon FR fabrics are produced in the company’s vertically integrated manufacturing facility located in Trion, Ga. To ensure that every Mount Vernon FR fabric is of the highest level of reliability, quality, durability, color consistency and shrinkage control, the company has total in-house control of more than 25 major processes, including spinning, weaving, dyeing and FR finishing, and uses more than 3,000 computer-monitored control points and extensive quality assurance testing.
Mount Vernon Mills is a 165-year-old manufacturer of textile, chemical and related products for the apparel, industrial, institutional and commercial markets. Mount Vernon FR is part of Mount Vernon Mills’ Apparel Fabrics Group, which produces denim, flame resistant and piece-dyed fabric.
