According to Nathan Abela, BOC Product Manager, Safety, the welding jackets are Hi-Vis as well as lightweight and come with vents to enhance comfort for the wearer. The Hi-Vis jackets are made from 330gsm treated cotton with Pyrovatex technology to give it added fire protection.
All fire retardant cotton items have been tested for durability, flame resistance, radiant heat as well as molten metal splash and undergo dermatological tests. The FR properties of the Pyrovatex fabric used in the welding jacket will last the life of the garment.
