Flame-resistant (FR) lab coats have also been available for years, but they have not been widely used. However, the use of FR lab coats in university labs has become increasingly important due to a number of recent accidents related to fire and clothing ignition. Having PPE that combines durable FR protection with inadvertent chemical-splash protection (CP), makes it ideal for many laboratories. This technical brief outlines the importance of FR clothing in laboratories. Read on the learn more.
