Flame-Resistance
Fire flash testing
A flash fire is common in environments where flammable solids, liquids and their vapors, gases or dust are prevalent. When a flash fire ignites, there are considerable shock waves along with a rapidly moving flame front at a high temperature that can last for a short duration. The test method for flash fire, ASTM F1930, requires a 3 second exposure to flame and uses sensors on a mannequin to determine a body burn percentage. See how GlenGuard FR performs compared to non-FR garments.

Arc-Resistance
Arc flash testing
Arc flash occurs when a flashover of electric current passes through the air from one conductor to another, or to ground — creating the possibility of the blast reaching up to 35,000°F. Subsequently, an ignition of clothing can occur, as well as burns directly to the skin. GlenGuard has been rigorously tested to test method ASTM F1959, which determines the heat transfer response through a fabric after it’s been exposed to an electric arc. See how GlenGuard performs.

Chemical-Resistance
Chemical/acid resistance testing
Some AR/FR fabrics can become compromised when they come in contact with certain bleaches and acids, which could result in color loss and/or losing core properties for their integral strength. Due to its meta-aramid blend and because GlenGuard fabrics are produced using solution dyed fibers, GlenGuard offers supreme color and strength resistance to incidental contact to bleaches and acids. Contact your sales professional for additional information.
