Arc flash protective clothing fabrics

What is an electric arc?

arc flash

An electric arc flash is an electric discharge that is formed between two elements subjected to a difference of potential, or different tension / voltage. During discharge (explosion) it is produced a very intense luminosity and a large heat release and may reach a temperature of 14000ºC . These phenomena can be extremely destructive and cause severe burn injuries.
The danger of an electric arc is different from an electric shock or electrocution risk.
For these reasons it is essential that operators in the electric sector are well equipped with protective uniforms and / or clothing.

Thanks to this quality the FR properties are not altered or reduced by the use or washing clothes unlike other solutions made with fire retardant treatments.

SECOND, THE COMFORT OF THE USER
Due to its composition and especially the use of high quality cotton (untreated) the MARKO AT235 gives high values ​​of comfort and breathability. All the fabric manufacturing process is well aware of this second point and is reflected in the RET and RCT values that offers the fabric.

THIRD, COST-EFFECTIVE
The excellent durability of this fabric is that present results of mechanical resistance (tensile and tear strength) improved comparing its competitors. Marko AT235 fabric also provides good resistance to abrasive action, smears and appearance of pilling, the result is that the resulting garments, maintain an improved appearance.
Another important point to consider is the optimal colour fastness of our production process, which enables us to ensure a good long “useful” life of the protective clothing made with our fabrics.
