Military / Government Contract

A military contractor was in need of a high strength, light-weight fabric for a new counter-chemical/ biological warfare garment utilizing nanotechnology. This fabric was needed as part of a special test to take place in Germany within two weeks.

We took into account the customer’s tenacity requirements and thickness limitations in the process of selecting the most appropriate specialty yarn for the application. This yarn was then modeled into a fabric with the knit construction which addressed the customer’s other functional needs to ensure the weight requirements would be met.

After collaboration with the client, we developed an ultra-high strength yarn using a unique knitting pattern that met the customer’s performance requirements. Once designed, we warped, knitted and finished the material in 8 days, in time for the contractor’s trip to Germany.
