 Selecting Material for Approach Suits

Fyrepel offers many garments with a choice of materials. These choices are Aluminized Glass, Aluminized Nomex® and Aluminized Rayon. Each fabric has specific properties that help you decide your material selection.

Aluminized Glass

Aluminized Glass combines the reflectivity of an aluminized outer surface with glass fabric. Glass fabric neither burns nor supports combustion, and offers a combination or properties from high strength to fire resistance. It is a stable material that will not stretch or shrink, even after exposure to extremely high or low temperatures.

Aluminized Nomex®

This material combines an aluminized outer surface with Nomex®, an inherently flame resistant material of aramid fiber by DuPont. Though considered expensive, it is very durable, proving to be a cost effective material in the long run.

Aluminized Rayon

Aluminized Rayon combines an aluminized outer surface with Rayon, which provides excellent insulation. It is a PFR (Permanently Flame Resistant) material, which has been chemically treated to give it it's flame resistant qualities.



Do Not Confuse Ambient, Conductive and Radiant Heat

The following definitions are given as reference in selecting the proper clothing for heat protection.

Ambient Heat - is surrounding atmospheric temperature in a given situation. Examples: 65°F-70°F (18°C-21°C) in an office; 2000°F (1093°C) in a fire walk.

Conductive Heat - is generated by direct contact with a hot surface. Examples: picking up a burner block at 600°F (315°C); leaning against a furnace wall at 1000°F (538°C).

Radiant Heat - is generated by the sun or a source of fire, such as a fireplace or furnace, and is absorbed by masses of material struck by the heat's rays. This is why it is cooler in the shade on a sunny, hot day.



Improper use of these suits may result in personal injury or death. Improper use includes, but is not limited to improper selection, use without adequate training, disregard of the warnings and instructions supplied with the suits and failure to inspect and maintain the suits.
