HERRINGBONE & TAFFETA POLYESTERS

DuPont's 100% Dacron polyester yarn is woven into both taffeta and herringbone weaves. Taffeta fabric is constructed in a plain weave while herringbone is a heavier broken-twill weave that produces a balanced zigzag effect. Both serve in many cleanroom and peripheral area applications as an effective barrier for airborn particles and bacteria filtration.

SELGUARD 110® by TEIJINSELGUARD
Teijinselguard Selguard 110 is a 100% polyester plain-weave fabric with a grid pattern of nylon electro-conductive yarn. Worn only as an undergarment, this Cleanroom-acceptable fabric is lightweight, soft, and extremely comfortable.
Data:




NOMEX®
Nomex® is a synthetic polyamide aramid manufactured by DuPont. Red Kap garments are made from Nomex IIIA®, a blend of 93% Nomex, 5% Kevlar (another Dupont aramid) and 2% carbon core nylon. The carbon nylon fiber conducts static electricity, and, therefore, antistatic perfomance of Nomex IIIA is not dependent on ambient relative humidity.

Nomex IIIA is inherently flame resistant which means that this property cannot be removed by wear or laundering. The fiber is unaffected by most bleaches, solvents, and acids, and has generally good resistance to alkalis. The garment does not offer personal protection from these chemicals. Nomex IIIA has excellent abrasion resistance and can be expected to perform well for many years in applications where this longevity can be utilized.

Nomex IIIA is inappropriate and not recommended for use around any molten substances or welding operations.

Test Performance: Nomex garments meet or surpass a standard of two (2) seconds Afterflame and five (5) inch Char length maximums when tested by Federal Test Method 5903.1 FTM STD 191A (Flame Resistance of Cloth: Vertical method).

Processing: Garments made from Nomex IIIA-Aramid should be washed separately in low alkalinity, surfactant based detergents at 140 degrees F maximum. They should be dried at 160 degrees F maximum stack temperature so that the fabric temperature does not exceed 280 degrees F. Exceeding these temperatures will accelerate color loss. Do not use chlorine bleach. Nomex IIIA-Aramid can be dry cleaned. Avoid contamination with flammable lint or redeposition. Technical bulletin RK-63 is available for additional processing information.

INDURA®
INDURA® flame resistant ("FR") cotton protective garments are made from 100% cotton FR fabrics produced with the gaseous ammonia or "ammonia cure" process. The ammonia cure process forms a polymer within each cotton fiber rather than being a surface finish. All of the excellent cotton benefits of softness of hand and moisture absorbing are maintained with minor loss of strength compared to untreated fabrics.

The durabitlity of the INDURA® finish is guaranteed for the life of the garment by the fabric supplier under industrial laundry conditions. Also, home washing will not diminish the flame resistance. Caution, avoid bleach and any kid of fallow soap that might coat the fabric and mask the flame resistant properties. Some acids, of course, will destroy any kind of cotton.

In Welding Situations: INDURA® - Heavy sparks and slag will eventually make holes in any garments other than primary protection such as leather gloves and gauntlets. However, heavyweight INDURA® cotton provides a high level of resistance to such fabric destruction and will not melt or ignite and continue to burn.

Test Performance: INDURA® garments meet or surpass a standard of two (2) seconds Afterflame and five (5) inch Char length maximums when tested by Federal Test Method 5903.1 FTM STD 191A (Flame Resistance of Cloth: Vertical method).

Processing: INDURA® garments can be processed at washing and drying temperatures that are normal for any 100% cotton garments. Do not bleach. Do not use natural soaps, starch, or fabric softeners. Overdrying can cause excessive shrinkage as with any cotton fabric. INDURA FR® denim jeans cannot be dry cleaned. Other INDURA FR® cotton garments can be dry cleaned. Technical Bulletin RK-55 is available for processing information.

VINEX
VINEX FR-9B protective garments are made from a special fabric which is a blend of 85% Vinal/15% polynosic (Vinal is a polyvinal alcohol polymer treated to be flame resistant in the fiber forming process). The resultant flame resistance is an inherent part of the fabric and cannot be removed by washing. Molten aluminum will shed from the VINEX FR-9B fabric and will not stick. As a result, VINEX FR-9B garments have been used extensively for protective clothing for workers exposed to molten aluminum splash. VINEX FR-9B garments are not recommended for use in aluminum smelters or reduction operations where exposure to molten by-products such as "bath" or cryolite (Na3AIF6) are a consideration. The fabrics are highly resistant to a wide variety of common, dilute acids, bases and organic solvents (with the exception of concentrated nitric acid) with no observed loss of strength in the fabric. However, the garment does not offer personal protection from these chemicals.

Test Performance:VINEX FR- 9B garments are self-extinguishing and meet or surpass a standard of two (2) seconds Afterflame and six (6) inch Char length maximums when tested by Federal Test Method 5903.1 FTM STD 191A (Flame Resistance of Cloth: Vertical method).

Processing: Drying and finishing temperatures are critical to shrinkage performance. It is recommended that washing temperatures not exceed 140 degrees F. Condition at stack temperature not exceeding 160 degrees F so that fabric temperatures do not exceed 260-270 degrees F. We suggest processing separately to help insure proper temperature control. If ironing is required, iron only completely dry fabric with no steam. Excessive shrinkage may result if theses recommendations are not followed. For specific care and maintainance recommendations please refer to Technical Information Bulletin RK61.
