Now, the state requires workers in dangerous places to be equipped with appropriate personal protective equipment. So more and more people began to have a certain understanding of flame resistant clothing. Today Shanghai C&G editor will introduce to you the principle, performance indicators and types of flame resistant clothing.
The principle of flame resistant clothing
The flame-resistant fiber in the protective clothing fabric will greatly slow down the burning speed of the fiber, and it will extinguish itself immediately after the fire source is removed, and the burning part will be carbonized quickly without melting, dripping or piercing, giving people time to evacuate the burning site Or take off the burning clothes on the body, reduce or avoid burns and scalds, and achieve the purpose of protection. Protective clothing is widely used in oil and gas, chemical, metallurgy, mining, electric power, fire protection and other industries with various protection requirements.
Key performance indicators
Generally include performance requirements of flame retardancy, safety, practicality and aesthetics. The most basic flame-resistant protective clothing is a product that meets national standards. In addition to excellent flame-resistant properties, it also requires some safety indicators such as tensile strength and color fastness. At the same time, flame-resistant protective clothing also has requirements for general use as clothing, such as pilling, stretching, abrasion, etc.; there are also requirements under high temperature and flame in special environments, such as thermal stability, structure, etc.; there are also requirements for flame-resistant technology, such as Moisture permeability, comfort, etc. In addition, from the two aspects of sewing technology and appearance, specific requirements need to be made for the sewing of various parts of protective clothing, trademarks, buttons, symmetry, color difference, flatness, and cleanliness, so as to ensure that the clothing is well-made, beautiful, and fully reflects the practical value. On the basis of further improving the safety protection performance.
Types of flame resistant protective clothing
Classified by fabric, there are cotton, CVC, C/N, acrylic cotton, aramid
According to the function, there are flame-resistant, oil-proof and waterproof, flame-resistant and anti-static, flame-resistant and anti-arc, etc. root
According to the working environment, the choice of protective clothing should be based on actual needs. The design of clothing styles and structures is based on safety, and individual requirements are appropriately combined with actual needs. It is necessary to comprehensively consider clothing materials, performance parameters, and price factors.
Dry fires frequently occur in autumn and winter, especially in the protection of fire sources in industrial production and life. Therefore, it is becoming more and more important to choose and use flame-resistant protective clothing correctly, mainly to protect workers, reduce fire injuries and save lives.
