About the Technical Data
Note: Sources for all chemical test data are independent laboratories. All tests were performed under laboratory conditions and not under actual use conditions. Tests were performed on material samples, not actual garments. All chemicals tested at 95% and 75° F except Sodium Hydroxide, tested at 50%.
Warning: There are uses, environments and chemicals for which these garments and/or fabrics are unsuitable. It is the responsibility of the user to review available data and verify that the garment and/or fabric is appropriate for the intended use and meets all specified government and/or industry standards.Caution: Do not use for fire fighting protection. This garment is designed for escape purposes only. Avoid open flame or intense heat.
