Burlington Industries has got a $1.6 million contract to supply the US Marine Corps with micro denier polyester fabrics for use in their physical training (PT) trunks. This lightweight woven 100 per cent micro denier polyester fabric utilises Burlington’s Moisture Control System (MCS) technology for advanced breathability and moisture management.

These fabrics will be produced at the company’s facilities in Cordova and Burlington, North Carolina. Burlington Industries is a division of Elevate Textiles.

This lightweight woven 100 per cent micro denier polyester fabric utilises Burlington’s Moisture Control System (MCS) technology for advanced breathability and moisture management. MCS technology increases the hydrophilic properties of fabric by allowing moisture to dissipate, transporting along the yarn faster. MCS keeps the wearer dry and comfortable by absorbing moisture and moving it away from the skin as it evaporates off of the surface of the fabric.

Burlington Labs, Burlington’s in-house research and development incubator, engineers advanced fabrications and technical finishes that are applied to protect and enhance performance while providing troops advanced functionality in diverse environments.

“We take pride in making fabric that serves those who serve our country,” says Allen Smith, president of Burlington. “Our MCS technology for the general purpose trunk provides the ultimate comfort and durability to withstand the rigours of the US Marine Corps physical training. As we continue to develop innovative fabrics and technologies aimed at equipping and protecting the US Armed Forces, our focus is delivering the same unmatched performance, protection, and service that has defined our business since 1923.”

For more than 55 years, Burlington has been an integral part of the defence supply chain as a global textile leader with core competencies in worsted wool and performance synthetics. Burlington Military Solutions offers a diverse range of vertical manufacturing capabilities, fibre and fabric blends. Burlington Military Solutions specialises in meeting the specific needs of the military market. (SV)
