INDUSTAR – Heat and Flame Protection


Despite the very high health and safety standards prevalent within the oil and gas industry, its workers can still face a vast number of hazards including flash-over situations. Workers are
exposed to heat & flames during flash-over.

Traditional fabrics like cotton or polyester continue burning, melt or drip in case of a flash-over situation which takes 3-4 seconds only.

INDUSTAR Protective Clothing provides permanent flame resistance; does not melt, ignite and continue burning; insulates the wearer from heat and decrease/avoid heat burns; provide time
to escape; increases the chance of survival.

Application Areas

Main application areas are classified as Oil & Gas, Refineries, Off-shore, Petrochemical Companies, Ammunition Factories, Fire-works Manufacturers, Cement Industry, Glass Industry, Military & Police, Railways, Shipbuilding Industry.

ISO 11612 Heat & Flame Protection:

The purpose of this standard is to provide minimum performance requirements for clothing to protect
against heat and flame. Within many of hazards listed in this standard there are three performance
levels (except Radiant Heat where there are 4 Levels). Level 1 indicates exposure to perceived low
risk, Level 2 indicates exposure to perceived medium risk and Level 3 indicates exposure to perceived
high risk.

Code A: Limited Flame Spread (A1, A2)
Code B: Convective Heat (B1, B2, B3)
Code C: Radiant Heat (C1, C2, C3, C4)
Code D: Molten Aluminum (D1, D2, D3)
Code E: Molten Iron (E1, E2, E3)
Code F: Contact Heat (F1, F2, F3)

EN 1149-5 Electrostatic Properties:

This European Standard specifies material and design requirements for electrostatic dissipative protective
clothing used as part of total earthed system, to avoid incendiary discharges. The requirements may
not be sufficient in oxygen enriched flammable atmospheres. This European Standard may not be
applicable for protection against main voltages.
