New FR nylon laminates for military and tactical markets

June 1st, 2013 / By: / Advanced Textiles, Products

W.L. Gore & Associates and Massif Mountain Gear Co. have introduced Massif® Battleshield™ and Massif Battleshield X™ fabrics, two nylon-faced, flame-resistant, water-resistant laminates for the military and tactical markets. Nylon has a long history of outdoor performance but less-than-adequate flame resistance; the new fabrics offer a shift in FR protection by combining filament nylon-faced laminates with exceptional FR protection. Both fabrics provide excellent durability, water resistance, breathability, flame protection, stretch and warmth-to-weight ratio for improved performance and life cycle costs.
