Bulwark® FR High Visibility Rainwear
Care and Cleaning Information for Bulwark® FR Hi-Visibility Rainwear
Bulwark flame resistant high visibility rainwear is constructed from a blend of NOMEX and KEVLAR fibers coated with PVC. These garments have welded seams for waterproof performance and provide limited protection from incidental chemical splash. Where major chemical exposure is a concern, appropriate specialized barrier garments should be selected.
Flame resistant garments should be removed immediately and replaced with clean FR apparel if they become fouled with flammable materials.
Bulwark flame resistant high visibility rainwear meets the requirements of ASTM F1891-2002 for arc and flame resistant rainwear and ISEA/ANSI 107-2004 for high visibility. When worn separately, the jacket is rated ANSI Class 2, Level 2. When worn with the matching bib, the ensemble rates Class 3, Level 2.
These garments can be wiped clean using a damp cloth or home laundered in cold water using the gentle cycle. Hang to dry.

How flame-resistant fabrics work
Flame-resistant (FR) fabrics and garments are intended to resist ignition, prevent the spread of flames away from the immediate area of high heat impingement, and to self-extinguish almost immediately upon removal of the ignition source.
Normal work apparel will ignite and continue to burn if exposed to an ignition source such as flame or electric arc. Everyday fabrics will continue to burn until they are extinguished or all flammable material is consumed.
