Flame Resistant Fabrics
If the job calls for flame resistant workwear, it’s pretty important to know your fabric options, and which one is best for you to use. The very first, and one of the most important, thing to remember about fabrics when working in a fire hazardous job is no synthetic materials. Even your undergarments need to be natural fibers.
