MATERIAL Flame-retardants are used to hinder materials from catching on fi e or to limit flame sp ead, but they do not make the materials completely incombustible. There are different methods of flame t eatment and different kinds of materials. At ProJob, we have opted for the latest technology where the flame protection is built into the fib es of the fabric. That is, it is not applied to the surface of the fabric as with regular flame t eated garments. Therefore, it cannot be washed or rubbed out which makes the flame p otection last longer. Most of our garments are made of modacrylic, cotton and antistatic fib es. Upon contact with fi e they release a gas that disperses the oxygen and the flames a e smothered without afterglow. The flames do not sp ead outside the charred area and there is no flaming debris hat may stick to the user’s skin. Undergarments are made of wool and Lenzing FR , a viscose fib e with inherent flame p otection with the same qualities as mentioned above. ® INFORMATION WHAT ATTRIBUTES DO OUR GARMENTS HAVE? 8402 Jacket • • • • • 8404 Lined Jacket • • • • • 8503 Trousers • • • • • 8504 Trousers • • • • • 8001 Undershirt Longsleeve • • 8101 Undershirt Shortsleeve • 8102 Long Underpants • 8103 Boxer Shorts • * provided that EN ISO 11611 is not required 44 • Flame treatment is used to prevent flames f om spreading, not to protect the body against heat for a long period of time. However, a flame etardant garment can protect against heat a certain amount of time. If used in combination with flame etardant undergarments, this amount of time doubles. The garments must always be worn buttoned / zipped up and user protection is reduced if worn together with non-flame etardant garments. Before use, the user should check the garment for any damages. The user should also be aware of how to take the garment off quickly in case of accident. We recommend welders to use a leather welding apron to protect the garments from welding sparks. A wet, dirty or sweaty garment provides inferior protection and the garments should therefore be washed often. A garment that has been exposed to flame is depleted and must be eplaced. Any mending must be done using material with the same protective standard as the garment. Transfer printing and embroidery may affect a garment’s protection. Consult the printer so that the protec- tion is not compromised. Different professions have different protective needs regarding workwear and protective clothing.
