FR Specialty Finishes and Enhancements

To further accommodate demands from safety managers, Mount Vernon FR continues to develop specialty finishes and enhancements that can be applied to any of their flame resistant fabrics. Current offerings include amDry water repellant finish and amSoft softening finish, detailed below.


amDry adds a durable water repellent finish that can be applied to any Mount Vernon FR fabric. When combined with Mount Vernon FR fabrics’ proven protection from the hazards of electric arc and flash fire, amDry finishing means a third level of protection can be reached, making it especially helpful for water-intensive FR industries. See the amDry difference in the videos below.

Mount Vernon FR fabrics can be finished using our amSoft® process, which ensures that our customers get flame resistant fabrics that are of the highest level of softness and comfort. All Mount Vernon FR fabric is durable and reliable, but our one-of-a-kind amSoft process helps create softer FR fabric for more comfortable flame resistant clothing.
