Research and Development

And so ensuring safety. The development of ever better protective materials is a continual process for TenCate Protective Fabrics. The fabrics must provide protection against a multitude of dangers. From heat and flame, drops of molten metal and splashes of liquid chemicals, to electrical arc, static electricity and poorvisibility. Simply protection at every level. Every level of safety. The fabrics must also offer other properties essential to a worker’s daily tasks: comfort, breathability and moisture-regulating capacities, a durable character and industrial or domestic washing convenience. Every level of comfort. The fabrics are available in various colours and weights.

TenCate Protective Fabrics works together intensively with fibre manufacturers, chemicals suppliers, laboratories, governments, garment makers, laundries and end users. And this leads to more knowledge, new insights and surprising innovations. Which is why TenCate Protective Fabrics is considered by its business relations as the leading expert in the field of material technology: the ultimate combination of textile technology and chemical processes. Furthermore, the important TenCate Protective Fabrics division is part of a broad-based technology concern. Something that benefits us all. Best for safety. Best for comfort.
