General description of arc flash overalls
When an arc occurs, huge energy is released in a very short period of time. Metal conductive elements can vaporize causing rapid expansion of hot steam and metal. The rapid and thermal expansion of air and metal vapors can cause loud explosions and great pressure.
The main causes of arcing: Conductors with poor performance, damage to insulation materials (including cracks, water ingress, aging, etc.), accidental contact with charged objects by humans or other objects, design or installation errors, poor maintenance of equipments.
Arc damage forms:
Electric Arc Blast Burn, which is the most serious injury in the arc, comes mainly from thermal radiation and splattering molten metal from the arc explosion.
Electric arc explosion caused the clothes to be ignited and burning which resulting in serious burns.
The loud noise produced by the explosion of the electric arc hurt the hearing.
Physical damage to the human body from the impact of an arc explosion.
arc flash rated overalls features
Permanent anti-arc: the raw material fiber itself has a flame retardant properties, with a permanent protection, will not reduce the protective performance by repeatedly washing.
Will not be ignited by the heat and not continue to burn; no melt dripping.
High temperature- resistance, will not deform in case of high temperature and other physical changes.
High tearing strength, wear-resistant, stable dimension, not broken easily;
In the event of arc explosion or flame, fabric fibers will expand and thicken, close the fabric gap, resulting in energy protection barrier to isolate the human body and heat, so that the degree of arc damage is to be minimized.
Forbidden to use alone under following circumstances:
Arc flash rated overalls is forbidden to be used alone in the special case of chemical and biological hazards, poisonous gas and viruses, radioactive substances, unidentified gas and liquid. It should be used together with other corresponding protective clothing.
