In the event of a flash fire, everyday fabric (non-flame resistant) can ignite and burn when exposed to an ignition source, becoming a source of fuel for prolonged flames. These fabrics may burn long after the original source of the flame is gone. Flame resistant fabric self-extinguishes after the original source of the flame is removed.
Who needs Flash Fire Protection?
Flash Fire potential is a common hazard where flammable materials are present or are being handled, processed, or stored: for example, in Petrochemical plants, Molten Metal and Glass foundries, Mining operations, Oil and Gas refineries, extraction and pipelines, as well as Gas utility services.
