Milliken & Company, one of the world's largest privately-held textile and chemical manufacturers, announced the launch of a new lightweight flame resistant(FR) fabric, as part of its Amplitude line of workwear fabrics. Amplitude is the company's line of patent-pending premium, high-performance FR fabrics for industrial workwear.

The new six ounce per square yard Amplitude fabric is one of the lightest weight 88/12 cotton/nylon fabrics to be recognized by UL for compliance to NFPA 70E (HRC2) electric arc and NFPA 2112 flash fire protective clothing. This fabric is made completely in the United States, and has the same benefits as the other fabrics in the Amplitude line, including soft hand, increased breathability, and improved strength.

The newly enhanced proprietary fabrics are processed ammonia-free and are constructed of a lightweight cotton/nylon blend designed to help mitigate potential injuries due to electric arc and flash fire exposure while providing durability and superior comfort. The combination of these capabilities makes it an ideal fabric for industrial workwear occupations in manufacturing, utilities, electrical maintenance and petrochemical.

“Our customers want fabrics that provide a substantial degree of FR protection as well as enhanced comfort and improved aesthetics,” said Jack Spoon, business leader for Milliken Workwear. “Our new lightweight Amplitude fabric delivers a unique combination of capabilities providing the wearer breakthrough performance, protection and comfort.”
