Westex's proprietary technology, custom-engineered equipment and extensive experience allow Westex UltraSoft® to contain all of the following characteristics on a consistent basis:
Guaranteed flame resistance to laundering
Excellent shrinkage control — Westex's "Double-Shrunk" technology
Soft feel or "hand" to optimize comfort (a stiff hand can also have a negative impact on garment appearance and durability)
The Market-Proven Westex Guarantee
For over 20 Years Westex has guaranteed the flame resistance of Westex UltraSoft®, UltraSoft AC™ and Indura® brand fabrics for the life of the garment
This guarantee has been proven repeatedly through millions of garments installed annually into FR clothing programs around the world
The WTX-87 Wash Formula
Established over 20 years ago to prove the validity of the Indura® "flame resistant for the life of the garment guarantee" to effectively compete with Nomex® synthetic FR fabrics
Westex continues to employ this harsh method today even though new standards have since been introduced with washing procedures that are far less severe
The Westex Brand; Look for the Label!
Westex UltraSoft®, UltraSoft AC™ and Indura® fabrics are required to be clearly and properly labeled within every garment as Westex brand fabrics. Generic and off-brand FR fabrics often claim they are "as good as" or "the same" as Westex fabrics — but our consistent performance proves there is no substitute for the original.
