EN 13034 Standard includes tests of fabric to determine its physical parameters and resistance to chemicals. There are 4 chemical compounds (H2SO4, NaOH, n-heptane and isopropanol) used for the testing.
According to standard EN 13034, fabric has to be tested to the following tests:

  1. Abrasion resistance (EN 530:2010 Method 2)
Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6
≥ 10 cycles ≥ 100 cycles ≥ 500 cycles ≥ 1000 cycles ≥ 1500 cycles ≥ 2000 cycles

 

2. Determination of tear resistance (EN ISO 9073-4:1997)

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6
≥ 10N ≥ 20N ≥ 40N ≥ 60N ≥ 100N ≥ 150N

 

3. Determination of breaking strength and elongation (EN ISO 13934-1:2013)

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6
≥ 30N ≥ 60N ≥ 100N ≥ 150N ≥ 500N ≥ 1000N

 

4. Puncture resistance (EN 863:1995)

Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Level 4 Level 5 Level 6
≥ 5N ≥ 10N ≥ 50N ≥ 100N ≥ 150N ≥ 250N

 

5. Resistance of materials to penetration by liquid (EN ISO 6530:2005, EN 13034:2005+A1:2009)

  • Sulphuric acid 30% (Ri; Pi)
  • Sodium hydroxide 10% (Ri; Pi)
  • O-Xilene (Ri; Pi)
  • 1-Butanol (Ri; Pi)
  • Ri – Repellency Index
  • Pi – Penetration Index
FIJI Flame Retardant fabric
FIJI Flame Retardant fabric

220gsm | 99% Cotton, 1% Antistatic | FR- Twill 2/1

A light, 220gsm flame retardant fabric made of pure cotton with twill 2/1 weave. The fabric includes antistatic yarn.

Fiji is a light flame retardant fabric with classic twill weave, developed specially for light flame retardant clothing. Fiji protective fabric is recommended for use as a middle layer of FR-clothing, like shirts, vests, light pants, or even light overalls for hot climate.
