AUGUST 06, 2021 – XM FireLine fabric FR-Jersey-200C has been certified by the Aitex (Spain) to EN 11612 & EN 1149 safety standards.
FR-Jersey-200C 60% Modacrylic, 38% Cotton, 2% AS 200gsm is used for fr base layer (FR underwear). This FR knitted fabric with Antistatic properties helps to increase fr protection when weared under fr clothing (fr-jacket and fr-pants).
EN ISO 11612 certification includes tests for Heat resistance, Limited flame spread, Tensile strength, Tear Resistance, Convective, Contact and Radiant heat, Molten iron splash after Domestic washing (5 cycles at 60C).
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 1149-3 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.
