We have tested and certified ALL our XMF flame retardant fabrics. Each of our FR-fabric has at least ISO 11612 (Protection from heat and flame) or ISO 11611(Welders protection from heat and flame) certificate. Most of XMF FR-fabrics have also been certified for Multi-Risk protection and have EN 1149 (Antistatic properties) and/or ISO 13034 (Protection from liquid chemicals), EN 61482 (Protection from Electric Arc).
As we sell our flame retardant fabrics not only in Europe but all over the world, then we made also tests and certification according to NFPA 2112 (Flame resistant garments) and ASTM F1959/NFPA 70E (Arc Flash testing) for several of our FR-fabrics.
We believe that certification in independent testing labs is a must have for FR-fabrics. XM FireLine cares about Proven Protection of XMF fabrics and has ALL the certificates open and easy to download from our site. No authorisation or special request needed – just click on any FR-fabric and you can see all its certificates.
Woven fabrics made of 100% polyester, 100% cotton and mixtures with polyester or cotton/carbon (with anti-static function) and mixtures thereof with polyamide or polyester, piece-dyed and finished (including oil- and water- repellent finishing), or finished with flame retardant products accepted by OEKO-TEX® (based on materials pre-certified according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®)
ISO 9001 Certificate
The registration covers the import and export of textiles. ISO 9001:2008 specifies requirements for a quality management system where an organization needs to demonstrate:
– its ability to consistently provide product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements,
– aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for continual improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.Download
ISO 11612 (Protection from heat and flame)
ISO 11612:2015 specifies performance requirements for protective clothing made from flexible materials, which are designed to protect the wearer’s body, except the hands, from heat and/or flame. For protection of the wearer’s head and feet, the only items of protective clothing falling within the scope of ISO 11612:2015 are gaiters, hoods, and overboots. However, concerning hoods, requirements for visors and respiratory equipment are not given.Download
ISO 11611:2015 specifies minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing including hoods, aprons, sleeves, and gaiters that are designed to protect the wearer’s body including head (hoods) and feet (gaiters) and that are to be worn during welding and allied processes with comparable risks. For the protection of the wearer’s head and feet, this International Standard is only applicable to hoods and gaiters. This International Standard does not cover requirements for feet, hand, face, and/or eye protectors.Download
EN 1149-5 is European standard for garments that protect against electrostatic discharge where there is a risk of explosion e.g. in oil refineries.
It is part of a series of standards for test methods and requirements for electrostatic properties of protective clothing.
EN 1143-3 is a test method, that uses induction charging to evaluate how fast a fabric discharge, i.e. looses its electrostatic charge via air. According to the Standard the charge decay value should be no more than 4 seconds according to test method EN 1149-3. It means that antistatic fabric should loose its electrostatic charge in less than 4s.
ISO 20471:2013 specifies requirements for high visibility clothing which is capable of visually signalling the user’s presence. The high visibility clothing is intended to provide conspicuity of the wearer in any light condition when viewed by operators of vehicles or other mechanized equipment during daylight conditions and under illumination of headlights in the dark.
Performance requirements are included for colour and retroreflection as well as for the minimum areas and for the placement of the materials in protective clothing.Download
