FR-Oxford receives EN ISO 13034

November 2017, our new flame retardant fabric FR-Oxford has been certified for EN 13034:2005+A1:2009 (Protection clothing against liquid chemicals).
The testing has been done at international lab AITEX (Spain).
EN 13034 Standard includes fabric testing in various ways to determine its physical parameters and resistance to chemicals. There were 4 chemical compounds (H2SO4, NaOH, n-heptane and isopropanol) used for the testing.
According to standard EN 13034 FR-Oxford has been successfully passed all the following tests:

FR-Oxford is a 250gsm protective fabric with limited flame resistant properties (EN 14116). It is made of 98% polyester and 2% antistatic with flame retardant PU lamination and Water Resistant finishing (EN343 & EN 1149). FR-Oxford fabric is best used for protective rainwear or FR-clothing. FR-Oxford is you best choice for FR clothing to be used in rainy places where there is also a risk of flame or fire.
