Metal working

PROBAN® fabrics provide protection from splashes of molten metal

Garments produced from PROBAN® fabrics meet the requirements: 
  • EN ISO 11612 Protective clothing – Clothing to protect against heat and flame
  • ISO 9185 Molten iron splash (Code letter E)
PROBAN® fabrics should not be used for protection from exposure to molten aluminium splash (Code letter D)

Mechanism: PROBAN® fabrics are self extinguishing, and thus prevent the spread of flame created by an ignition source

PROBAN® fabrics retain their integrity by forming a strong carbon char which prevents the transfer of heat from an ignition source passing through the clothing. 

The char forming mechanism of Proban® fabrics acts as a barrier to the transfer of heat from an ignition, thus significantly reducing or eliminating, burn injury
