CarbonX to introduce new PPE solution at the NSC Expo
In today’s industrial workplaces, many workers are performing multiple tasks—and facing multiple hazards—across functions in their facilities. Now there is a protective solution designed to defend workers against multiple risks in one fabric.
Repel is truly non-flammable and will not burn, melt, or ignite, even after intense heat or flash fire exposure. It far exceeds the industry’s standard levels of protection, with a TPP rating of 9.0 cal/cm2, an ATPV rating of 9.0 cal/cm2, and a breakthrough time of 18 minutes when exposed to a 93% concentration of sulfuric acid. In addition, Repel is perhaps the only non-aluminized flame-resistant fabric able to pass the ASTM F955 pour test for both molten iron and aluminum.
Sparks and spatter simply roll off Repel, making it ideal for use in outerwear applications like jackets, sleeves, coveralls, aprons, bibs, and spats. With an encapsulated barrier of silicone, the fabric also shields against harsh weather conditions, reducing wind penetration and repelling water.Available in 8 oz, 10 oz, and 12 oz weights, Repel is significantly lighter and more flexible than other primary protection options currently in use, which can greatly improve comfort while reducing the potential for heat stress. Although it is water resistant, micropores in the fabric make it breathable, and it dries quickly and is odor resistant.
