WHAT DOES BULWARK FR CLOTHING MEAN?

Manufactured for the specific purposes of protecting the wearer, who works in high heat or fire exposing environment and will protect them from any intermittent flames and or other thermal exposures
DOES FR CLOTHING BY BULWARK REALLY WORK?
Bulwark Work Clothes or FR clothes are manufactured from the highest quality and heat/fire tested fabrics and components, which will not only, NOT melt on contact or exposure to fire, but also not melt onto the skin. As well as being a non-conductive material of heat of any form, this prevents the transference of heat through the FR clothing onto the skin.
It is also tested under extreme conditions that test for breaking or tearing which can lead to heating creeping into little holes or tears and injuring the wearer.
WHAT ARE THESE FRC’S MADE OF (MATERIAL AND CHEMICAL)
A combination of 100% cotton and blended nylon (12%) and cotton (88%) blend is the two most common of fabrics used and the Bulwark Work Clothes line is treated with EXCEL-FR® 100% that provides not only the main reason behind the FR but also the extent of the longevity of the garments which is the highest for its quality and market
It is also treated with chemicals alongside EXCEL-FR® 100% with other chemicals such as:
- Ultra Soft® fabrics
- An ammonia curing system
- Tetrakis (hydroxymethyl) Phosphonium chloride (THPC)
- Urea precondensate.
So buying you FRC through Bulwark not only gives you quality and longevity (from 12 months and up until 12 years) all depending on the type of blend of each garment and the care (as in laundering and exposure to different work environments daily)
Always make sure you wear non-synthetic undergarments and not even semi-synthetic to be safe as these types of materials can melt onto your skin causing lots or bad injuries and or burns, (even melt your skin)
E.g.: of not to wear would be polyester, nylon, acetate and any other labeled garment that says contains or is synthetic or semi-synthetic
It is safe to wash your FRC clothing especially if new in water no hotter than 120 degrees Fahrenheit and tumble dry on low. Do not use detergents that are mild and are free of hydrogen peroxide and or animal fats like tallow soap, also avoid bleaches.
Always wash the garments inside out to avoid any type of abrasions.
As this FRC product was created for the workers exposed to high heats and fire daily, it can also be used as PPE (personal protective equipment) especially if you are working with very high voltage jobs that can cause arcing which can cause serious burns and even death.
Please make sure never to over dry when tumble-dry settings as this can cause shrinkage as the cotton does shrink because of this reason.
Although the chemical used are non-toxic, although not advertised on packages, children should always be careful when wearing these as they can get prone to overheating and can cause rashes
