Customer Need

Soldiers in combat can be exposed to elements for which traditional fabrics provide little protection.

We conducted testing to specifically validate the flame protective and mosquito resistant properties of nGuard's surface protection capabilities.

nGuard delivered strong results to provide a combat uniform solution with valuable, life-saving protection options for a new generation of combat protection.

NYCO 50-50 was tested both untreated and treated with nGuard with a max capacity gas flame torch for 4 seconds, 2 inches from the fabric.

A treatment with nGuard produced greatly improved flame resistance and prevented melting.
