Woolpower's fire protection series has been developed to meet the criteria established by the European work environment committees with regard to protective clothing for industrial workers. Woolpower® meets the standard of EN 531 A B2 C1. Code A indicates the garment's resistance to open flame, code B its protection from convective heat and code C its protection from radiated heat. Woolpower® is 70% Wool / 12% Aramide / 18% Polyamide. There is no Bromide in the Flame Resistant products.
Merino wool is comprised of the naturally flame resistant protein Keratin. The non-combustible properties of Keratin, coupled with the heat-resistant synthetic, Aramid, renders Woolpower FR a premiere flame-resistant tool with broad spectrum industrial application.
