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
