Challenging environments require complex solutions to their problems, which is where Flame Acid protective workwear takes centre stage.
Sophisticated industrial working environments can expose workers to multiple threats. In many environments, the risk of exposure to flames and accidental fires is accompanied by the risk of acid splashes and spills, which can cause serious injury and even loss of life.
Commonly known as ‘Flame Acid’, this type of protective workwear makes use of complex chemical principles to ensure that it is effective, durable and functional, working double duty to offer much-needed protection in the workplace.
Flame Acid textiles are treated with a variety of safe substances to give them the properties required to resist corrosion by acids and destruction by flames.
why use flame acid fabrication
During a fire flames feed off the gases that are released when fabrics burn. As these gases are released and ignite the fire spreads, causing destruction to property, the environment and people. Garments treated with flame retardant chemicals or made from materials that are inherently flame retardant are able to withstand the heat and do not release flammable gases, which effectively stops the combustion process, protecting those who wear them and preventing the spread of a fire.
The acid repellant component of Flame Acid clothing ensures that the clothing does not corrode when it comes into contact with corrosive chemicals, protecting the skin tissue of the wearer.
A large number of industries, including the petroleum, battery manufacturing, mining and rigging, steel and boiler making sectors, rely on flame retardant and acid-repellant protective workwear to keep their workers safe.
