Westex DH performance fabrics

Westex by Milliken is expanded its DH performance fabric line, which offers a unique fiber blend for breathability and moisture wicking in protective daily FR apparel. Its high breathability and superior moisture-wicking properties keep the wearer cooler, drier and more comfortable on the job, Westex says. Surpassing leading competitor blend fabrics in the performance arena, Westex DH is beneficial in all climates, from hot and humid summers to colder layering weather. 

“Engineered for the oil and gas and electrical industries, Westex branded fabrics cover a multitude of job site hazards, including offering proven protection to help mitigate impacts of short-term thermal exposures, like flash fire and arc flash,” says Tom Moore, national sales director for the Westex by Milliken business. “

Westex by Milliken now offers Westex®DH in an 8-ounce, 11 ATPV basket weave fabric. This durable style is an ideal option for tactical and cargo pants, compared to other weight fabrics, as it combines strength with practical styling for those needing functionality on the job.

As with the entire Westex DH line, the fabric is NFPA 2112 certified, provides NFPA 70E category 2 protection and is ANSI 107 certified, ideal for flash fire and arc flash protection.
