Bulwark FR and Milliken & Company Partner to Revolutionize Flame-Resistant Workwear

Bulwark and Milliken & Company have partnered to take a fresh approach to solving a decades-old challenge in the flame-resistant apparel industry -- that comfort has to be sacrificed in order to provide the right level of safety. With the development of the Bulwark iQ Series, and its exclusive Amplitude G(2) fabric, FR wearers will enjoy a new age of protective garments that are light, breathable, fashionable and superior in comfort. In looking for an innovative partner that could help the company design a truly breakthrough solution, Bulwark quickly realized that Milliken & Company was uniquely qualified to solve the complex science and fabric challenges of today's FR clothing. Bulwark's customer knowledge, job-related insights and garment design expertise produced a deeper understanding of the real problem to be addressed. These capabilities, combined with Milliken's voracious appetite for FR and fabric innovation, led to the creation of Bulwark iQ series, a completely new experience to meet the needs of workers and linemen in the electric utility, oil and gas, emerging energy and NFPA 70E(R) (manufacturing) industries.

Bulwark Launches iQ Series

Bulwark announced the launch of the iQ Series, a product line that delivers superior comfort through fabric and design innovation -- without compromising the trust and safety of its wearers. Designed to meet the needs of workers and linemen in the electric utility, oil and gas, emerging energy and NFPA 70E(R) (manufacturing) industries, the iQ Series offers wearers increased comfort through superior breathability, mobility, softness, durability and moisture wicking -- while providing protection from flames, arc flash fires and similar dangers. Nine iQ Series products - six knits and three wovens - will be offered in men's and women's styles. The Bulwark brand has future plans to expand the iQ Series platform. The iQ Series will publicly debut at The American Society of Safety Engineers Trade Show in June 2014.
