The fabric in the HAZTEC® Kilmar, Kelvin and other products in this family of garments feature genuine Protal® Modacrylic fibres which are produced by Kaneka Corporation of Japan.
Protal® fibres are renowned for offering outstanding performance and a fully transparent supply chain from fibre to finished garment. Each HAZTEC® garment is then tested and certified to EN and UKCA standards.
It’s important that if the garment is exposed to a flame source that the fabric does not burn after the flame source is removed. We’ve included 2 video clips here that demonstrate the laboratory test on a piece of fabric where the fabric extinguishers after the burner is removed and a clip that shows the no after-burn an ARC flash exposure of over 2800 degrees C.
One way to ensure your team is protected with the ultimate in FR Workwear is to ensure that the fabric’s performance is as it should be according to the EN ISo 11612 standard.
In this video clip which is done in laboratory conditions, you can see the flame source is applied to the fabric for the specified period of time according to the EN/UK standard. After the flame source is removed, there is no afterburn to the fabric – we call this Instant Extinguishing.
The fabric in the clip is the most popular HAZTEC® FR AS ARC fabric – W285 – the perfect weight for Workwear for the summer and winter months, and also features the FC finish for repellency of Chemicals and Fluids to ensure your workwear stays smarter for longer.
