FR, Secondary FR and Chemical Protective FR - Lakeland Protects Oil & Gas Workers Like No Other
Repellency is an important factor in the effectiveness of disposable secondary FR garments and should be a primary driver in purchase decisions. Watch a product comparison video that displays repellency performance in vertical flammability tests.
Disposable secondary FR garments are designed to be worn over primary thermal protective garments (TPG's). As shown in the video above, they are tested with a simple vertical flammability test that identifies the fabric’s repellency performance and response to flame. Water, alcohol and oil are good indicators of the ability of a disposable fabric to protect the wearer, or in the case shown in the video, protect the primary protective garment worn beneath.
