Corfu-330 certified to EN ISO 11612 & EN 11611

June 2021, AITEX lab (Spain) has tested Corfu-330 our new flame-resistant fabric to the EN 11611 safety standard for Protective clothing for use in welding and allied processes and EN ISO 11612 (Protective clothing — Clothing to protect against heat and flame).

According to EN ISO 11612:2015 and EN ISO 11611:2015, Corfu-330 has been successfully tested to the following tests:

Corfu-330 results for samples and after 5 washing cycles at 60ºC, according to the standard ISO 6330:2012, method 6N, F drying (tumble dry)

The performance requirements set out in ISO 11612:2015 are applicable to garments which could be worn for a wide range of end uses, where there is a need for clothing with limited flame spread properties and where the user can be exposed to radiant or convective or contact heat or to molten metal splashes.

The new Corfu FR-fabric is structurally very similar to Madeira, but slightly heavier. Entry level fr-fabric is oriented for who wants to start own FR-program.

Corfu-330 is not intended for industrial washing and it has lower tear strength, than Madeira-320.
Corfu has the best price for flame retardant fabric and in full conformance to EN ISO 11612, 11611, EN 61482. The certification made in AITEX lab.
