Technical Bulletin #44Technical Service Bulletin #4

This Technical Service Bulletin is intended to assist our strategic partners who manufacture FR fabrics, our customers who construct FR protective garments, and, most importantly, the consumers who buy and use these high performance FR protective garments.

While the weaver is responsible for making sure that the quality of the fabric will meet specific performance requirements, the garment manufacturer is responsible for cutting the fabric into various shapes and sizes, and then joining them together so that they have good structural integrity.  The purchaser needs to be confident that the garment will deliver quality, value, and long term performance for the end user.

This document focuses on the measurements used to evaluate the structural integrity of the protective garments produced after rolls of high performance FR fabrics are cut into various shapes and then sewn together.
