Sold Per Yard
Springfield DH BW is a 48% Tencel 40% Modacrylic 12% Aramid blend of fibers that provides exceptional flash fire and electric arc protection. These fabrics may be a bit off-color but are otherwise first quality goods.
Springfield's new inherently FR fabric, exceeds industry standards by offering more than twice the protection of any chemically treated cotton/nylon fabric when exposed to a 4-second flash fire.
A third hazard is not knowing if the FR protection in your garment has been compromised by accidentally laundering with certain chemicals or bleach. Springfield DH fabric eliminates this hazard because it’s inherently FR. This ensures maximum protection against electric arc and flash fire for the life of the garment. Inherent FR protection cannot be washed out or worn away like FR treated cotton/nylon blends. If you can wear the garment, you can be sure you’re protected.
In fact, under normal wear conditions, garments made with Springfield DH fabric can last up to two times longer than FR treated cotton/nylon garments. This new dual-hazard fabric is designed to withstand rigorous wash conditions in industrial laundries with no loss of FR properties. Springfield DH fabric retains an excellent after-wash appearance and has a low propensity for pilling.
Union dye shades can be achieved with good colorfastness properties. Springfield DH is also available in ANSI 107 and CSA Z96 high visibility colors.
Springfield DH retains significant strength and structural integrity after thermal exposure, ensuring the fabric remains intact. It will not melt, stick or drip when exposed to extreme temperature or flame.
In addition to providing a high level of protection, Springfield DH also has excellent breathability and optimized moisture management to keep the wearer cooler, drier and more comfortable. Plus, it’s appropriate for casual wear – a big advantage for workers who prefer not to carry their clothing to the job site.

General Nylon Care Tips
Nylon fabrics are very durable and you can wash and dry them at home.
- Wash in cool to moderate water temperatures.
- Do not use bleach. For tough stains use a dry cleaning solvent first.
- Fabric softener is not recommended as it affects the function of the water repellent applied to some fabrics, but often times it can diminish a static problem. There are various brands of softeners with different chemistries and some will help static at the expense of water repellency, and others will have no effect on either. No softener will damage the basic fabric and will come off in the next wash
- HOWEVER, absolutely do not use fabric softener on waterproof breathable Nylon faced fabrics.
- Hang dry or dry in a medium temperature dryer.
- Remove from dryer and hang promptly to minimize wrinkles.
- You can iron with a presser cloth. Always test first on scraps or out-of-sight parts.
- 100% Nylon fabric can be dry cleaned
Some Nylon fabrics have a durable water repellent (DWR) finish on the front face of the fabric. The DWR helps the fabric shed water and stains. Over a period of time this DWR finish will wear off and needs to be replenished. If your fabric stops beading water on the front face you can replenish this finish with a protectant called ReviveX® Water Repellent for Outerwear. It comes in a cleaner and spray on form.
