Excel-FR™ is a trademark of Bulwark for FR cotton fabrics produced with the gaseous ammonia or THPOH-NH reaction. This process forms a high molecular weight polymer within the cotton itself. Cotton is soft and widely viewed as the most comfortable fiber. The ammonia cure flame resistant process has only a minor affect on either fabric hand or performance characteristics.
Applications Most areas involving ferrous metals such as foundries, flame cutting, welding, etc. Also used in electrical utilities and chemical, oil, gas, and petro-chemical industries.
Not Recommended For Use around molten "white metals"such as aluminum, magnesium, or zinc or for use in critical static control operations. Ammonia cure garments should not be worn in chemical operations where contact with strong oxidizers (e.g.,>10% sodium hypochlorite, NaOCI) or reducing agents (e.g., sodiumhydrosulfite, Na, S, 04) is a consideration.
Flame Resistance Excel-FR™ garments are permanently treated for life-of-the-garment durability.
