There are treated garments with permanent FR properties that do not wash out with softeners and bleach detergents.
Cotton nylon blends generally have better strength and durability when compared to Aramid and Aramid blends.
ATPV refers to the thermal performance of the garment.
Voltage is the only factor when calculating risk and appropriate PPE.
When exposed to flame the I-Arc material shows significant shrinkage.
I-Arc material retains the majority of body heat and vapor on the inside of the garment.
A garment with an ATPV rating of only 8,2 Cal/cm2 would still qualify within Category 2 for Arc rated PPE.
I-Arc provides similar body heat transfer to Aramid.
Inherent FR garments retain their FR properties even after colour fades.
Bova arc garments not only feature inherent FR properties but also outperform other garments currently in industry on comfort.
