The 100% cotton Rasco Fire Retardant Apron featured here is a must-have item of safety apparel for anyone working in the presence of sparks such as welders, those operating grinding equipment, employed at a foundry, etc. This 42-inch long Khaki Fire Retardant Apron carries an ATPV (Arc Thermal Protective Value) rating of 12.5, and falls within Hazard Risk Category (HRC) 2, making it NFPA 70E compliant.
This Rasco FR Apron is both fire and flame resistant, meaning it can rightly be termed a fire resistant apron or fire retardant apron. It ties in the back like an ordinary cooking apron and features an adjustable neck strap. Cleaning can be accomplished by either commercial/industrial washing (at no more than 165°F) or in your home washing machine at 120°F or less. Use no detergents with bleach, no chlorine bleach and no fabric softeners or dryer sheets. Since this apron consists of 100% cotton, you can expect that washing at higher temperatures will cause a certain amount of shrinkage.
