Acids are vital agents in various industries, but can be seriously harmful to those who work with them. Acid-repellant workwear is a critical line of defence against at-work injuries. Acid spills can have devastating effects on property and the environment, and can even cause the loss of a life.
Workwear, uniforms and gloves that can resist the harmful effects of acid exposure, repelling acid splashes and preventing serious acid burns, are an essential safety requirement. Supporting many of the country’s biggest industrial companies, Sweet-Orr has been trusted with supplying protective wear garments that are comfortable, durable, malleable, and functional.
In the line of duty when dealing with volatile, flammable, dangerous, and unhygienic materials and fluids the occasional spill or burn is a harsh and hindering reality.
You need functional and hardwearing protective wear that will rise to the occasion, so you can maintain focus every step of the way.
Flame Retardant – these fabrics are chemically treated after they have been woven, to give them the properties required to withstand flames.
Flame Retardant protective garments are made by treating woven fabrics with chemical compounds, before assembly. Using an immersion process they are given their protective properties by a combination of chemicals, which may include substances such as Dialkyl Phosphono Propionic Acid amide-N and Methylol.
These fabrics are useful in environments where the risk of flame-related incidents is low to moderate. Sweet-Orr’s Flame Retardant products provide adequate protection to a variety of workers, including boilermakers and welders.
