Special Instructions

None of the materials or processes used in the manufacture of these products are known to be harmful to the wearer. The manufacturer has examined under the system for ensuring quality of production by means of monitoring and inspection. These flame and acid garments are designed to accommodate the basic safety requirements and standards for Personal Protective Equipment. The information contained herein is intended to assist the wearer in the selection of personal protective equipment. Actual conditions of use cannot be directly simulated in a test environment therefore it is the responsibility of the end user and not the manufacturer or supplier to determine the garment suitability for the intended use. Flame and acid protective garments should be thoroughly inspected before use to ensure no damage is present.

Compliance & Conformity

Garments comply to the latest SANS 434 standard (This standard specifies requirements for the material, cut, make and trim of boiler- suits, two-piece workwear suits, bib and brace overalls, coats and unlined jackets). This standard makes reference to the following relevant standards: SANS 1362 Sewing threads. SANS 1387-4 Part 4: Cotton jean and drill fabrics. SANS 1387-10 Part 10: Pocketing. SANS 1822 Slide fasteners. SANS 5278 Sewing stitches per unit length. SANS 10235 Fibre-content labelling of textiles and textile products. SANS 50471 High-visibility warning clothing for professional use. • The fabric is to SANS 1387-4 for D59 drill fabric, 4/1 satin weave @270gsm, 37 thread per cm weft and 19 threads per cm warp. The breaking strength is 940 N warp and 510 N weft. • Flame retardant fabric is tested to SANS 1423-1 for textile fabrics of low flammability for apparel: Class B Category 1: The fabric ignites within a given time period and might continue to flame but at a rate of flame propagation that is within a specified limit. Surface Flash None. Ignition time (seconds) _ 20 sec. Rate of flame propagation 5 mm/s. ** Note this is a test situation for the fabric and does not cancel or imply otherwise to the labels wash instruction. • Flame retardant silver retro-reflective tape is tested to SANS 50471:2006 (EN 471:2003 + A1:2008) and SANS 1423-1:2008 for textile fabrics of low flammability for apparel: High visibility warning protective clothing capable of signalling the users presence visually, intended to provide conspicuity of the user in hazardous situations under any light conditions by day and under illumination by vehicle headlights in the dark. Performance require- ments are included for retro reflection and not for the entire garment. • Acid resistant fabric is tested to ISO 6530:2005 for protection against liquid chemicals: Two levels of the potential performance are assessed by this method of testing to meet with possible requirements for protection against: a) Deposition on the surface of a material at minimal pressure, of spray droplets up to coalescence or occasional small drips. b) Contamination by a single low-volume splash or low-pressure jet allowing sufficient time to divest the clothing or take other action as necessary to eliminate any hazard to the wearer from chemical retained by the protective garment, or in circumstances where pressure is applied to liquid contaminants on the surface of the clothing material, as a result of natural of the wearer (flexing of contaminated areas of clothing at arms, knees, shoulders) and contact with contaminated surfaces (e.g. walking through sprayed foliage). Acid resistance for protective clothing against liquid chemicals for performance requirements for chemical protective clothing offering limited protective performance against liquid chemicals. The acid resistant finish is primarily a liquid proof coating that is not destroyed by the action of acids or other chemicals. It doesn’t allow the cloth to be wetted by the acids and is therefore “acid resistant”: The test chemicals are: • Hydrochloric Acid (HCl) 32% • Sulphuric Acid (H₂SO₄) 24% • Nitric Acid (HNO₃) 65% • Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) 40% CLASS C CATEGORY 3 There is no SANS specification for Acid Resistance therefore alternate testing is done in the absence of a national standard. The tests are done to the ISO 6530:2005 and the chemical selection and concentration to the withdrawn DIN 32763 standard. Packaging, Storage & Obsolescence DW-D59FA-O: Sizes 28 – 48 are packed in individual polybags and sold as 15 units. Sizes 50 – 64 are packed in individual polybags and sold as 10 units. Should there be visible damage such as tears or burn holes, it isrecommended to replace the garment immediately.

Cleaning & Maintenance

• The following suggestions will help keep your garment safe and neat: • D59 garments can be cleaned by home cleaning or commercial laundering provided all the recommended conditions and setting are adhered to. • Should home procedures not remove contaminants, then dry cleaning is recommended. • Our recommended cleaning for these garments is as follows: • Flame Retardant garments should not be washed with personal non-flame retardant clothing to avoid contamination by flammable materials. – Pre-treat greasy stains and wash the garment in warm water with a light cleaning solvent. – Do not use Hypochlorite bleach or detergents containing Hypochlorite bleach. – Chlorine bleach may cause fading and reduce fabric strength. – Do not overload home laundry equipment. – Do not tumble dry garments. – Thoroughly rinse the garment to remove any wetting agents. – Do not hang in direct sun. – Sunlight can cause fading and reduce fabric strength. – Iron the garment to enhance and re-generate the finish effect. – When using commercial laundry aids, be sure to read and carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Note: The flame retardant finish is a permanent finish applied to the cotton fabric which reacts with the cotton fibre to produce a permanent covalent bond This is used internationally to produce a wash fast flame retardant finish that lasts at least 50 washes. Acid resistant garments when wetted with an acid and is allowed to dry orstand in it's wetted state for a long period will destroy the fabric and holes will become visible as after each wash the holes would fray wider. • Should acids wet the garment, it should be washed and neutralised as soon as practically possible. • The chemical used in the acid finish is a Fluorocarbon and is permanent therefore should not lose its effect after 50 washes
