NTLS CNR 65JM FR 6.5 oz 220 gsm Modacrylic / Cotton / Anti Static fibre 60/38/2 - ATP Cat 2 Coverall

The key features of this 6.5oz 220 gsm garment are the intrinsic FR properties that were tested to ASTM 11612
Normal Fire Retardant Cotton garments that are treated with chemicals lose their efficacy after 25 washes as the chemical gets washed out.
With the introduction of a proprietary cotton blended yarn to improve ATP value it still passed A1 B1 C1 and F1 after 25 washes
and delivered a higher 9.0 CE CAT2 ATP rating; much higher than 4.5 oz pure Aramid which normally qualifies only as CAT 1 (ATPV 4.5)

Cotton garments have a much higher ATP (Arc Thermal Protection) factor than synthetic fabrics.
The challenge therefore was to introduce cotton without chemical treatment so that it remains intrinsically safe after even 25 washes.
Due to the cotton content our fabric provides roughly double the safety protection for Electrical workers in the event of an Arc Flash which at 19,500º C has a higher temperature than the Sun.

The introduction of cotton makes the wicking and breathing of this heavier 6.5 oz garment much better than 100% synthetic Aramid while delivering the same or better FR safety
Many Aramid garments do not pass F1
Our fabric is designed to provide a very high degree of skin comfort with a silken feel compared to the rough cardboard feel of Aramid.
Additionally we have used very high quality neon dyes to make the garment day glo which is important in higher latitudes in winter
The garment also has FR reflective tape of high quality and YKK Brass zips.

This garment is tested to the strictest standards and Certified to EN 340:2003 EN 13688:2013 EN 1149-5:2008 EN 11612:2015 ASTM F1959
