At a weight of 195 gsm, Spartan HT Flex Lite is the only product from the Spartan military ripstop fabric family that incorporates 2 per cent LYCRA and 37 per cent cotton in its composition for integrated stretch and outstanding wearer comfort. It also features 61 per cent Cordura military grade high tenacity nylon 6.6 for strength and durability, the company said in a press release.
Carrington Textiles has launched a new addition to its Defence Range of products called Spartan HT Flex Lite. The product is a military ripstop fabric that incorporates 2 per cent LYCRA, 37 per cent cotton, and 61 per cent Cordura military grade high tenacity nylon 6.6. It provides integrated stretch, outstanding wearer comfort, strength and durability.
“We are seeing a growing trend for wearer comfort; this has transitioned from workwear to flame retardant, so it’s only natural that we see this transition into the defence sector. We wanted to develop a product that protects the wearer in the most challenging environments but at the same time is comfortable to wear,” Carrington Textiles R&D manager Kirsty White said.
“We’ve recently launched this product in the Middle East and the feedback from customers in the region was extremely positive. We are already seeing some interest from other geographical markets as we promote the product to current customers and prospects,” Paul Farrell, sales director, said.
Spartan HT Flex Lite is suitable for combat uniforms in virtually any region and it can be printed to a bespoke design at our state of the art printing facility.
