Lakeland’s Pyrolon chemical repellent and flame retardant suit is a highly flexible disposable coverall, delivering Type 3/4 chemical protection.
- Lakeland’s Pyrolon CRFR are both chemical repellent and flame retardant.
- These coveralls meet the requirements of EN 14116 (Index 1: Materials do not propagate a flame / no flaming debris / no spreading afterglow) for garment protection against heat and flames.
- Thermal Mannequin Tested – when the Pyrolon CRFR is worn over a Thermal Protective Garment (TPG) a total predicted body burn is as low as 24% of 1st degree burns.
- The fabric on chemical flame retardant suit will not ignite and chars at a low temperature, and unlike other disposables, these flame retardant coveralls will not continue to burn after the ignition source is withdrawn.
- It can be used safely over thermal protective garments without compromising protection.
- Offers Type 3/4 chemical protection against low to high pressure liquid sprays. Additionally offers Type 5/6 protection
- These coveralls feature stitched and taped seams to create fully sealed seams against liquid and dust ingress*
- Features outer FR PVC barrier film to proprietary nonwoven substrate of viscose rayon.
- Pyrolon flame retardant suit features super-B style design – this coverall has been developed for a superior fit, wearability and durability
- All Lakeland coveralls are suitable for asbestos handling and removing
Typical applications include:
- Petrochemical and refining industries
- Wear over thermal protective garments without compromising chemical protection
- Maintenance applications
- Fuel handling and distribution
- Oil spill clean ups
Which garment to use:
Gas or Vapour
|Light spray/aerosol protection
|Dry particle protection
|General overall spray:
no pressure but coverall soaked
|Strong jet sprays –
|Surrounding gases or vapours
Physical factors such as strenuous work?
The physical demands of a task such as climbing ladders, crawling or working in confined spaces, especially if the chemical is highly toxic, may require higher strength fabric or a specific design, even though permeation analysis and/or the hazard spray type indicate a lighter/more comfortable garment.
Liquid or gas?
Liquid would normally suggest a Type 3 or 4 hazard. However, some chemicals have low boiling points, becoming vapour at low temperatures. In such cases a gas-tight suit might be appropriate. Such information can be obtained from Safety Data Sheets.
Type 3 vs Type 4 – the different spray tests
|EN 14605 – Type 3: ‘jet’ sprays
|EN14605 – Type 4: ‘liquid’ sprays
By identifying that your application is Type 4 only (rather than Type 3), this enables more options for garment design and choice, along with a greater level of comfort.
*About stitched and taped seams:
The seam is first stitched and sealed on the outside with a heat activated tape. This results in an impervious seam which is completely liquid-tight. As these seams are generally used for chemical suits the tape type is often constructed from a similar material to the garment fabric in order to maintain similar chemical permeation properties.
