REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI): MARKET SURVEY FOR COLD TEMPERATURE AND ARCTIC PROTECTION SYSTEM MATERIALS, END ITEMS, AND CLOTHING SYSTEMS

The U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Command (NSRDEC), Natick, Mass., is conducting a market investigation to identify domestic suppliers and manufacturers of potential sources for materials, individual garment items and complete clothing systems for the development of a Cold Temperature and Arctic Protection System (CTAPS). This RFI will exclude handwear and footwear. The effort will develop a multi-layer system that will provide a minimum of no melt and no drip next-to-skin layers, environmental protection from wind and water, and provide tailorable protection for temperatures spanning a range from 45˚F to -65˚F in as few garments as possible.

The new cold weather materials, end items, and systems should be light weight with better durability, provide high compressibility/good recovery for packing in the ruck, have improved moisture management, and be fast drying while maintaining insulation. The performance of the current seven layer Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) Generation III is the baseline for characteristics and protection upon which materials, individual garments, and complete clothing systems will be compared. The individual garments or layers of the clothing system can be categorized into three areas: base layer (next-to-skin), insulating layer, and outer shell. While flame resistance is not a requirement at this time, materials and items that are flame resistant will be considered. It is also desired to expand no melt/no drip performance beyond the base layers without negatively impacting other performance attributes.

The Government will require 90 days after the 21 April 2017 submission date to make an initial assessment of the proposed technology(s) potential to fulfill CTAPS needs. The Government will integrate selected technologies and designs into test garments for field evaluation in winters 2018 and 2019 to establish operational effectiveness and Soldier acceptance. A test method matrix upon which materials and/or end item garments and systems will be evaluated is attached. Concurrently, NSRDEC will be seeking test methods to better predict operational effectiveness in the field. The Purchase Descriptions of the current ECWCS materials are available upon request. Interested sources may submit any combination of material samples (textiles), end item samples (garments), or complete system samples (ensembles) along with technical information as outlined in item (a) below. The samples will be degraded or destroyed during evaluation and will not be returned to the vendor. If a source chooses to submit samples, no payment will be made by the Government for such samples. The following information shall be included in the written response:

a. A material/product description to include: fiber blend percentages, finishes, and Berry compliance (or Berry compliant potential) documentation. The supplier must identify the technical parameters of materials and end items with documented test/analysis information as available that would substantiate capability advancement compared to the required physical properties and additional standard test matrix list. If the required colors are not submitted, the manufacturer must provide information that the materials can be successfully dyed and printed in the required colors. If a supplier submits multiple materials or samples to fulfill a requirement, they must identify the advantage/disadvantages of their competing products.

b. The finished cloth or end item shall not present a dermal health hazard when used as intended and tested. The vendor must furnish information, which certifies that the finished product is composed of materials, which have been safely used commercially or provided sufficient toxicity data to show compatibility with prolonged, direct skin contact.

AAFA RELEASES 18TH EDITION OF RESTRICTED SUBSTANCES LIST

On March 16, 2017, The American Apparel & Footwear Association released the 18th edition of the Restricted Substances List (RSL), the industry's chemical management resource for banned or restricted chemicals and substances in finished home textile, apparel, and footwear products around the world. The list is available for all industry professionals.

"Maintaining a responsible and compliant supply chain is both essential to running a good business and to being a good world citizen," said Rick Helfenbein, president and CEO of the American Apparel & Footwear Association. "The RSL is the go-to resource for apparel and footwear professionals tasked with tracking restricted and banned substances. As national and international regulations are continuously evolving, it can be difficult to keep track of the latest regulations. That is why AAFA does the heavy lifting for the entire industry with this report, to ensure that the products being sold in stores are safe for consumers."

The 18th edition of the RSL covers 12 categories with more than 250 chemicals and is updated to reflect additions or changes to regulations and laws that restrict or ban certain chemicals in apparel, footwear, and finished home textile products. AAFA's RSL Taskforce reviews and updates the RSL every six months to reflect the latest global regulatory changes.

With its commitment to supporting responsible production throughout the supply chain, AAFA offers access to the RSL to the entire apparel and footwear industry. It can be downloaded here.

About the RSL

The Restricted Substance List (RSL) was created in 2007 by a special working group of the American Apparel & Footwear Association's (AAFA) Environmental Task Force. The RSL is intended to provide apparel and footwear companies with information related to regulations and laws that restrict or ban certain chemicals and substances in finished home textile, apparel, and footwear products around the world. RSL serves as a practical tool for the entire supply chain to become more aware of various national regulations governing the amount of substances that are permitted in finished home textile, apparel, and footwear products. The list is updated every six months.

Dept. of Commerce Publishes AD and CVD Orders Relating to Silica Fabric from China

On March 17, 2107, the U.S. Department of Commerce published an Antidumping Duty Order and Countervailing Duty Order relating to certain amorphous silica fabric from the People’s Republic of China.

The product covered by this order is woven (whether from yarns or rovings) industrial grade amorphous silica fabric, which contains a minimum of 90 percent silica (SiO2) by nominal weight, and a nominal width in excess of 8 inches. The order covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of other materials contained in the fabric, regardless of whether in roll form or cut-to-length, regardless of weight, width (except as noted above), or length. The order covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the product is approved by a standards testing body (such as being Factory Mutual (FM) Approved), or regardless of whether it meets any governmental specification.

Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be produced in various colors. The order covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the fabric is colored. Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be coated or treated with materials that include, but are not limited to, oils, vermiculite, acrylic latex compound, silicone, aluminized polyester (Mylar[supreg]) film, pressure-sensitive adhesive, or other coatings and treatments. The order covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the fabric is coated or treated, and regardless of coating or treatment weight as a percentage of total product weight. Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be heat-cleaned. The order covers industrial grade amorphous silica fabric regardless of whether the fabric is heat-cleaned.

Industrial grade amorphous silica fabric may be imported in rolls or may be cut-to-length and then further fabricated to make welding curtains, welding blankets, welding pads, fire blankets, fire pads, or fire screens.

Bell Bottomed Trousers, Coat of Navy Blue

The article below is scheduled to run in the Friday, March 17, 2017, edition of the Boston Post-Gazette newspaper.

Bell Bottomed Trousers, Coat of Navy Blue
by David Trumbull

Navy's Decision to Abandon the Iconic Pea Coat Threatens Local Business

Since 1967 Sterlingwear of Boston, an East Boston manufacturer of outwear, has been the sole official supplier to the U.S. Navy of the pea coats that are so emblematic of that branch of the service. Now the Navy has announced that it plans to abandon a centuries' old custom, eliminate the navy-blue wool pea coat from sea bags, and replace it with a black nylon parka made in Puerto Rico.

"The negative impact that this decision has on our business is unparalleled in our long history of working with the U.S. Navy," said David Fredella, VP/COO Sterlingwear of Boston. He continued, "The numerous small businesses that rely on this product and the many employees that will be affected by this decision cannot be overstated. It is imperative that this decision be revisited and reversed."

Sterlingwear of Boston has enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the U. S. Navy. In times of need, the Boston manufacturer has responded and provided the necessary pea coats when needed, as well as, accommodating design and material changes over the years.

"The impact of this decision is far reaching and will affect the lives of so many who currently work in the textile and apparel industry which is already severely impacted by the loss of manufacturing and jobs to overseas," said Jack Foster, Director of Marketing Sterlingwear of Boston.

The new Parka will be worn shipboard and is not flame resistant. It is constructed of nylon and other synthetic materials. Wool, as in the traditional pea coat, is naturally flame resistant, with wool being one of the greatest natural bio¬degradable flame resistants known to the industry.

The effects of this ill-considered plan will ripple throughout Boston and New England. Every small East Boston business frequented by Sterlingwear employees will see a downturn in business if the garment maker is forced to lay off workers due to the loss of this contract.

Two of my clients, American Woolen Company and Northwest Woolen Mill, are the principal suppliers to Sterlingwear. It was Sam Brickle at Northwest Woolen Mill in Woonsocket, R.I., who first told me of this threat to our local New England manufacturing industries. Sam's mill, in cooperation with American Woolen Company in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, takes sheep's wool and transforms it into the durable, warm, and attractive fabric that Sterlingwear uses to produce a proudly made in the USA pea coat.

I'll let Sterlingwear have the last word. "To discontinue this garment that means so much, to so many, will be a disservice to those who have proudly worn or who currently wears the U.S. Navy Peacoat," Jack Foster, Sterlingwear of Boston.

Uncertain Trading times ahead for technical textiles sector

By Jens Kastner 01 March 2017, "One month after staunch free-trade opponent Donald Trump became US president, there are many policy decisions still to be confirmed and clarified to get a full idea of the impact his presidency will have on the trade in technical textiles. His accession comes during an unstable time for international trade – it is arguably even less clear how the UK’s planned exit from the EU will work out for the sector."

Milliken Named an Ethisphere Institute 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company for 11th Year

Milliken, a global innovation company with textile, specialty chemical, and manufacturing expertise, has been recognized by the Ethisphere® Institute, a global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices, as a 2017 World’s Most Ethical Company®.

Milliken has been recognized as a World’s Most Ethical Company for 11 years, every year since the award was first given in 2007 – a consecutive distinction given to only 13 companies. This year, it is one of only 20 privately-owned companies receiving the honor. The decade-long distinction underscores Milliken’s commitment to leading ethical business standards and practices.

“How Milliken grows is equally as important as how much we grow – this is an integral belief that each Milliken associate holds, and that directs their work daily. It is an honor to be annually recognized for this perspective on a successful, values-based business,” shared Milliken & Company President, CEO and Chairman, J. Harold Chandler.

The 150-year-old company has developed a long-standing reputation of engaged corporate citizenship throughout its headquarter community of Spartanburg, South Carolina, with a combined associate and company foundation donation of more than $500,000 to local nonprofits in 2016 alone. As environmental stewards, Milliken diverts waste from landfill, utilizes renewable energy and maintains a 600-acre corporate arboretum, where it hosts numerous community events. Moreover, Milliken locations around the world each engage in their local communities through philanthropic activities and meaningful career opportunities for associates and their families.

Twenty-seventeen is the eleventh year that Ethisphere has honored those companies who recognize their role in society to influence and drive positive change, consider the impact of their actions on their employees, investors, customers and other key stakeholders, and use their values and culture as an underpinning to the decisions they make every day.

“Over the last eleven years we have seen the shift in societal expectations, constant redefinition of laws and regulations and the geo-political climate. We have also seen how companies, such as Milliken, honored as the World’s Most Ethical respond consistently to these challenges. They invest in their local communities around the world, embrace strategies of diversity and inclusion, and focus on long term-ism as a sustainable business advantage,” explained Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. "Congratulations to everyone at Milliken for being recognized as a World's Most Ethical Company for more than a decade."

Methodology & Scoring

The World's Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotient® (EQ) framework which offers a quantitative way to assess a company’s performance in an objective, consistent and standardized way. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance and ethics.

Scores are generated in five key categories: ethics and compliance program (35%), corporate citizenship and responsibility (20%), culture of ethics (20%), governance (15%) and leadership, innovation and reputation (10%) and provided to all companies who participate in the process.

Honorees

The full list of the 2017 World's Most Ethical Companies can be found at http://worldsmostethicalcompanies.ethisphere.com/honorees/. Best practices and insights from the 2017 honorees will be released in a series of infographics and research throughout the year (view or download the 2016 insights). Organizations interested in how they compare to the World’s Most Ethical Companies are invited to participate in the Ethics Quotient.

About Milliken

Our community of innovators has developed one of the larger collections of United States patents held by a private U.S. company.

Bolt Threads Brings a Glimpse of the Future of Advanced Materials to SXSW

On Friday, March 10th, Bolt Threads, a Bay Area-based biotechnology company creating the next generation of advanced materials, unveiled the company's first step towards commercial apparel production. At SXSW, the company will release a limited edition knit necktie made of 100 percent Boltspun spider silk—the first spider silk product ever available for purchase.

Bolt Thread's CEO, Dan Widmaier, will be showcasing the tie at his SXSW 2017 panel titled "Nature: The Future of Fashion and Tech." The unisex tie is 100 percent spider silk made by humans using the company's proprietary technology. It is the culmination of seven years and over 200 person-years of research and design, and embodies the company's mission to produce sustainable performance fabrics for commercial use.

"We wanted to demonstrate the reality of a completely new way of manufacturing textiles, one that has nearly unlimited potential for innovation and also produces a sustainable product," said Dan Widmaier, CEO at Bolt Threads. "Over the past seven years, a team of dozens of scientists, engineers, technicians, and designers has worked tirelessly to get us to this milestone. We're proud and excited about this achievement and what it means for the future of textile production. Bolt's first product is a precursor of what's to come."

Bolt Threads is releasing 50 limited edition synthetic spider silk neckties, which will be made available to the public to purchase on March 11. Ties will be sold on the company's website via a lottery, which opens on March 11 and closes on March 14. Winners of the lottery will be able to purchase a Boltspun silk tie and own a piece of history.

Co-founded in 2009 by CEO Dan Widmaier, Chief Scientific Officer David Breslauer, and Vice President of Operations Ethan Mirsky, Bolt Threads was born out of a curiosity about natural spider silk and the idea of engineering novel protein materials. Through its proprietary technology, the company has developed a way to closely mimic silk created in nature for mass commercial production, pioneering more sustainable and non-toxic processes for textile manufacturing.

Following its launch from stealth in 2015, Bolt Threads has continued to pique the interest of investors and partners alike. Last year, the company announced a $50 million round in Series C funding, along with a partnership with outdoor retailer Patagonia.

Navy Plans to Phase out Iconic Pea Coat

The change was announced in August, 2016, that, beginning in 2019, the Pea Coat and All-Weather Coat would be eliminated from sea bags. Starting 1 October 2018, the black Cold Weather Parka (CWP) would begin transition as the standard Navy outerwear worn with service and service dress uniforms and issued as a sea bag item for recruits and new accessions. The CWP will become a mandatory sea bag requirement for all sailors on 1 October 2020.

The announced change has the U.S. wool fiber, yarn, fabric, and apparel industry deeply concerned.

The impacted US Pea Coat supply chain:

  • Northwest Woolen Mills(RI): Fabric Provider
  • Sterlingwear of Boston(Mass): Prime vendor and Pea coat manufacturer.
  • American Woolen Mills (Conn): Woolen Fabric Manufacturers
  • GH Littlewood(PA) : Wool Dyers
  • Chargeur Wool: (SC): Raw wool Providers

Questions and Concerns regarding the impending phase out of the Pea Coat.

  • Did the Navy do an industry impact study?
  • Did they factor in the future increase cost of other wool items due to the reduction of the textile supply chain?
  • Did they factor in that some other wool military items may be impacted regarding availability and capacity.
  • Are they aware that the Pea Coat is a small Business Set Aside and the Parka manufacturer is Located in Puerto Rico and is not a small business?
  • Is the Parka Flame Retardant?

Note: The parka that they want to replace the pea cock with is made of 100% Nylon with a Gortex lining. This material will melt onto the skin if exposed to high temperature or direct fire. If it will not ignite , it will melt.

Call me a traditionalist, but I can't imagine the Navy without the Navy pea coat.

Distributor of Pulley Block Systems Settles with FTC, Agrees to Drop Misleading ‘Made in USA’ Claims

A Texas-based distributor of pulley block systems will stop making misleading unqualified claims that its products  are made in the United States, under a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission.

In its complaint against Block Division, Inc., the FTC alleges that the company deceived consumers with false, misleading, and unsupported claims that its pulley blocks and other products are “Made in USA.”

According to the complaint, for a period of several years, Block Division’s pulleys featured imported steel plates that entered the United States from overseas already stamped “Made in USA.” The complaint also alleges that Block Division used unqualified “Made in USA” claims in advertising on its website, in stores, through trade shows and authorized dealers, on social media, and through flyers and pamphlets to represent that these pulley blocks, other products, and the parts used to make them, were all or virtually all made in the United States. In fact, the complaint states, Block Division’s pulley blocks and other products include significant imported parts, which are essential to the function of those products.

“Consumers have the right to know that they can trust companies to be truthful when it comes to ‘Made in USA’ claims,” said Acting FTC Chairman Maureen Ohlhausen. “This is an important issue for American business and their customers, and the FTC will remain vigilant in this area.” This is the FTC’s second Made in USA case in five weeks.

The stipulated final order prohibits Block Division from making unqualified “Made in USA” claims for any product unless it can show that the product’s final assembly or processing – and all significant processing – take place in the United States, and that all or virtually all ingredients or components of the product are made and sourced in the United States. Under the order, any qualified Made in USA claims must include a clear and conspicuous disclosure about the extent to which the product contains foreign parts, ingredients, and/or processing.

Block Division also is prohibited from making any country-of-origin claims about its products unless the claims are true and not misleading, and unless the company has a reasonable basis for making them.

The Commission vote to issue the complaint and accept the proposed consent order was 2-0. The FTC will publish the consent agreement package in the Federal Register shortly. The agreement will be subject to public comment for 30 days, beginning today and continuing through April 7, 2017, after which the Commission will decide whether to make the proposed consent order final. Comments can be filed electronically or in paper form by following the instructions in the “Supplementary Information” section of the Federal Register notice.

NOTE: The Commission issues an administrative complaint when it has “reason to believe” that the law has been or is being violated, and it appears to the Commission that a proceeding is in the public interest. When the Commission issues a consent order on a final basis, it carries the force of law with respect to future actions. Each violation of such an order may result in a civil penalty of up to $40,654.

The FTC’s Enforcement Policy Statement on U.S. Origin Claims provides further guidance on the Made in USA standard.

President Trump Wants to Hear from Your about the Impact of Federal Regulations on Domestic Manufacturing

The U.S. Department of Commerce is seeking information on the impact of Federal permitting requirements on the construction and expansion of domestic manufacturing facilities and on regulations that adversely impact domestic manufacturers. As directed by President Trump's Memorandum of January 24, 2017, "Streamlining Permitting and Reducing Regulatory Burdens for Domestic Manufacturing," the Secretary of Commerce, in coordination with the Secretaries of Agriculture and Energy, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, and other appropriate agency heads, is conducting outreach to stakeholders concerning the impact of Federal regulations on domestic manufacturing, and is soliciting comments from the public concerning Federal actions to streamline permitting for the construction and expansion of domestic manufacturing facilities and to reduce regulatory burdens for domestic manufacturers.

Comments must be received by 5 p.m. Eastern time on March 31, 2017.

Responses to this Request for Information will inform the Secretary's report to the President which will set forth guidelines for Federal permitting and regulatory agencies to streamline Federal permitting processes for domestic manufacturing and reduce regulatory burdens affecting domestic manufacturers. The plan will be coordinated with related activities under existing laws and executive actions.

Regarding Manufacturing Permitting Processes, the Government Seeks Information On:

1. How many permits from a Federal agency are required to build, expand or operate your manufacturing facilities? Which Federal agencies require permits and how long does it take to obtain them?

2. Do any of the Federal permits overlap with (or duplicate) other federal permits or those required by State or local agencies? If the answer is yes, how many permits? From which Federal agencies?

3. Briefly describe the most onerous part of your permitting process.

4. If you could make one change to the Federal permitting process applicable to your manufacturing business or facilities, what would it be? How could the permitting process be modified to better suit your needs?

5. Are there Federal, State, or local agencies that you have worked with on permitting whose practices should be widely implemented? What is it you like about those practices?

Regarding Regulatory Burden/Compliance the Government Seeks Information On:

Please list the top four regulations that you believe are most burdensome for your manufacturing business. Please identify the agency that issues each one. Specific citation of codes from the Code of Federal Regulations would be appreciated.

2. How could regulatory compliance be simplified within your industry or sector?

3. Please provide any other specific recommendations, not addressed by the questions above, that you believe would help reduce unnecessary Federal agency regulation of your business.
