Workrite Uniform Co., a flame-resistant (FR) clothing manufacturer, is releasing a new coverall that provides both FR properties and chemical-splash protection (CP). In addition to the new FR/CP coverall, the Workrite FR/CP line includes lab coat styles for both men and women. The first of their kind, these products combine the FR protection of Nomex IIIA fabric with Westex ShieldCXP, a proprietary chemical-splash protective technology. Each FR/CP item offers protection against thermal hazards such as arc flash and flash fire, while also repelling small amounts of hazardous liquid chemicals and resisting the penetration and wicking of inadvertent liquid chemical splash.

Workrite FR/CP products are for work environments where both thermal hazards and liquid chemicals—such as acids, bases, oxidizers, pharmaceuticals, agriculture products and fertilizers, cleaners, coatings and paints—are present. This includes the utilities industry, food processing, medical and research laboratories, machinery and transportation, and beyond.

The company also offers a broad selection of FR clothing in a variety of other styles and fabrics.
