US Army Selects Milliken's Abrams™ FR Fabric For ICVC

Spartanburg-based textile and chemical manufacturer Milliken & Company’s Abrams™ flame-resistant (FR) fabric has been selected as the only approved fabric for the US Army’s improved Combat Vehicle Coverall (iCVC), which replaces the current one-piece FR CVC uniform.

Abrams contains a combination of proprietary-blended fiber technologies, including DuPont™ Nomex®, to provide FR and other heat-related protection, as well as abrasion and tear resistance and moisture-wicking capabilities. According to Milliken, the new uniform’s design offers improved fit, function, and comfort.

The fabric also is approved for use in other combat uniforms. Milliken is a materials subcontractor for all US military branches as well as the US Coast Guard, US Post Office and the Department of Homeland Security.
