Westex’s advanced Indura Ultra Soft line of flame resistant 88% cotton 12% high tenacitynylon fabrics, introduced in 1996, are guaranteed flame resistant for the life of the garment in either high temperature industrial or home washing procedures. The fabric is engineered to focus the excellent abrasion resistance of the nylon on the outer surface to enhance garment wear life, while the cotton fibres are focused towards the skin to optimise comfort. In addition, Indura Ultra Soft fabrics are engineered to have an extremely soft feel to further enhance the superior comfort properties of cotton. Indura Ultra Soft fabrics are fully flame resistant and the 12% nylon actually enhances the protective performance in some cases, such as an electric arc and flash fire exposures.
Ultra Soft is expected to wear over 75% longer than 100% cotton fabrics in similar weights leading to an excellent value equation. Please note that additional wear life may not be realised in extreme wear situations including but not limited to welding and metals environments.
