Bulwark Protection, a US-based manufacturer and distributer of flame-resistant protective apparel and DuPont Safety & Construction, a business unit of DowDuPont specialty products division, have announced that the iQ series garment collection made exclusively with DuPont Nomex Comfort fabric received a 2020 Innovation Award from the NAUMD.
Bulwark Protection and its parent company, VF Workwear, also earned the NAUMD (North American Association of Uniform Manufacturers & Distributors) Best Garment Innovation Comfort Award in recognition of going above and beyond to transform the comfort and function of a uniform.
“At Bulwark, we are relentless in our pursuit of bringing game-changing flame-resistant (FR) garment innovations to the market that solve real-world FR problems,” Robert Grimes, VP/GM at Bulwark Protection, said in a press release.
The winning iQ Series garments are made with Nomex Comfort, an innovative fabric that is inherently flame resistant and delivers both extreme protection and maximum comfort. Nomex Comfort is lightweight, highly breathable and quick drying. It is also the lightest weight fabric on the market that meets international standards for heat and flame protection (NFPA 2112) and predicted body burn protection (ASTM F1930).
The award-winning garment collection includes multiple styles of shirts, pants and coveralls for men and women. Unique design features include patent-pending mobility pleats, larger pockets, mobility gussets and double knee patches.
“This iQ Series garment collection is a perfect example of how Bulwark listens to its customers and works to deliver innovative solutions that help keep workers safe and more comfortable,” David Domnisch, global business leader, DuPont Personal Protection, said. 
We want to congratulate Bulwark for receiving this prestigious award and are pleased that they chose Nomex Comfort fabric to help them deliver unparalleled protection and maximum comfort.”
