Military

Those protecting our countries can’t operate without the best protection wear. Soldiers travel the world, make long hours and often work under difficult circumstances. To support them in their jobs, the army provides them with smart uniforms that support them in all their movements and protect them against the discomforts of the outdoors.

The market for military wear is one of high standards and specific requirements. To go down well with military agencies around the world, you should combine the best protective fabric features with the greatest comfort and flexibility. Become the trusted advisor in smart fabrics and exceed army standards with innovative textile solutions!

What’s in it for me?

The secret of well-functioning armies is in the details. To meet the high army standards, every element has to be thought through. First of all, soldiers need to be protected from the elements of nature. Uniforms require water and oil repellency to keep their wearers dry, and flame retardancy to keep them safe. As they’re exposed to insects daily, you need to offer clever ways of protecting them against everything that buzzes and bites. Fabric finishes with impregnated permethrin insecticides, for example, have proven to be a very effective method to repel insects. Apart from protection, military need comfortable clothing that enables them to move freely. Fabrics need to be light-weight, breathable and have moisture-wicking properties. Additionally, garments should have a comfortable feel to enhance mobility and boost performance. On top of that, fabrics should be long-lasting, with colours that stay and coatings that repel mud and dirt, even after frequent washing.

Being successful in this market means being committed to strict demands and continuous innovation. As a partner with a proven track record in military wear, we can help you do exactly this.
