Modacryl Arcproof Clothing
Products » Electrical Safety
Modacryl is one of the first high visibility materials to be made available with flame retardant properties. It is also permanently antistatic. If high-viz is needed, plus the feature of extra safety when working with dangers of arcs or fire; then this range is perfect.
It is important to note Modacryl does not provide the same level of protection against fire or electric arcs as NOMEX or Proban. This range is perfect as a uniform for those working in the field all day, to provide that extra safety.
The garments are tested to 4kA for 500ms, which in many cases will be more than adequate. That is approximately equal to a 10Cal/cm2 rating in the American standard. This is a guide only; protection does become higher when more than one garment is worn.
When a task must be performed with a higher fault current risk than this normal a switching coat or similar item can simply be worn on top to boost safety for this short task.
Many different types of garments are available to suit anyone's needs for protective clothing.
