Coverall Provides Flame Resistance and Chemical Protection

Workrite Uniform Company, a flame-resistant (FR) clothing manufacturer, released a new coverall that provides both FR properties and chemical-splash protection (CP). This new Workrite® FR/CP product was on display for the first time at the 2017 National Safety Council Congress & Expo (NSC).

In addition to the new FR/CP coverall, the Workrite FR/CP line includes lab coat styles for both men and women. The first of their kind, these products combine the FR protection of Nomex® IIIA fabric with Westex ShieldCXP™, a proprietary, chemical-splash protective technology. Each FR/CP item offers protection against thermal hazards such as arc flash and flash fire, while also repelling small amounts of hazardous liquid chemicals and resisting the penetration and wicking of inadvertent liquid chemical splash.

“Prior to our FR/CP products, simultaneous protection against chemical-splash and thermal hazards typically required the use of more than one garment—resulting in discomfort, inconvenience and potential wearer negligence,” said Mark Saner, Workrite Uniform’s FR Technical Manager. “By offering a single, lightweight, durable solution, our FR/CP products dramatically improve safety and comfort.”

Workrite FR/CP products are ideal for work environments where both thermal hazards and liquid chemicals—such as acids, bases, oxidizers, pharmaceuticals, agriculture products and fertilizers, cleaners, coatings and paints—are present. This includes the utilities industry, food processing, medical and research laboratories, machinery and transportation, and beyond.

The coverall and lab coats are just the beginning—Workrite Uniform plans to continue expanding its FR/CP line in the future. The company also offers a broad selection of FR clothing in a variety of other styles and fabrics. For more information, visit http://www.workritefrcp.com
