ATH is a new material from Fristads incorporated in the Fristads Flamestat jacket and trousers series which meets new EN certification requirements. The jackets and trousers meet five of the certification criteria:
The jackets and trousers meet five of the certification criteria: flame retardant, high visibility, antistatic properties, and protection against arcs and acids. "The jacket has a consciously neutral design, which is why it is not certified as a high visibility jacket. We've simply responded to our customers' requests for an attractive, neutral work jacket," says Susanne SchrÃ¶ter, product developer at Fristads.
The ATH material consists of modacrylic, cotton and antistatic fibres. It is dirt-, oil- and water-repellent.
The garment has basic flame-retardant properties, offering protection against heat, flames and arcs. The flame-retardant properties are inherent in the ATH material, which has therefore not been treated with a flame-retardant substance.
