Polymer Group, Inc. Canada’s Difco business is partnering with an Ontario-based fabric dyer and finisher to provide customers the latest technology, expanded capacity and new protective fabrics. The strategic agreement with Colorama will enable PGI Difco to continue to offer customers high-quality flame-resistant (FR) products as well as its woven cotton and polyester/cotton products, and broaden its product p
ortfolio through a dedicated, responsive, cost-competitive dyeing and finishing partner.
    The partnership has already resulted in PGI Difco expanding its product portfolio to offer knitted sheared fleece FR fabrics for use in garments worn by electricians and utility line workers. These protective garments are designed to offer protection against electrical arcs, a growing area in FR apparel, to meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70E regulations.
