Maintenance and maintenance of flame retardant clothing
Aug 08, 2012

Flame retardant clothing is designed to protect users from accidental exposure to flame, exchange of heat, thermal radiation, and splashed molten metal. In general, in order to achieve its intended performance, it is necessary to comply with the European standard EN340 (general requirements for ergonomics and dimensions) and EN531 (requirements for high-temperature worker supplies). Flame retardant clothing can not be used as fire retardant for fire extinguishing, nor can it be used in dangerous situations caused by extreme heat or fire, or in environments not mentioned in the use functions given by hazardous chemicals, electrical appliances and manufacturers.

In the use of flame retardant clothing to choose the right, correct wear and fixed and in good condition to play a role. Before use, it is necessary to check the flame retardant clothing to ensure that all personal protective equipment is in good condition, clean and undamaged; if the protective clothing is not in good condition (there are stains, cracks, tears or holes on the aluminized surface), it needs to be replaced immediately.


If the flame retardant clothing is damaged during use, it should be removed from the working area immediately and replaced with protective clothing. If the equipment is contaminated by combustible materials, it may affect its flame retardancy. Flame retardant clothing can not provide protection against electric shock hazards. If the working environment is humid, water or sweat, it may affect the flame retardancy of the equipment.

In order to protect the protective function of the fire-retardant clothes and not destroy the surface material of the protective clothes, the machine washing, bleaching, ironing, dry cleaning and drying operations should not be used to clean the fire-retardant clothes after use, which will destroy the surface material of the fire-retardant clothes. After use, the situation of the protective clothes should be visually inspected. Remove all remaining substances from protective clothing and detergent (if necessary).

The detergent should be used only when the working area is really dirty and ensure that the substance used does not damage the aluminized surface. Flame retardant clothing should be completely dried before storage. If the surface is burned or scratched on the surface, it can be repaired with aluminum spray. If the damage is serious or the damage area is large, replace the protective clothing. Incorrect cleaning operations may affect the safety characteristics of the equipment.

The equipment needs to be managed when it is not needed and stored in its original packaging in a cool, dry, dust-free place away from fire and direct light. In order to reduce the aging of flame retardant and flame retardant clothing, the performance of flame-retardant clothing can not be reduced by environment. If it is found that the flame retardant clothing is contaminated by a specific substance or product, it is treated according to the general rules of discardable fabrics of labor insurance products. Otherwise, it should be treated in accordance with the existing special waste disposal requirements.
