Hazards and Safety Standards

Proven Hazard Protection

At Westex®, our flame-resistant and arc-rated (FR/AR) materials and technologies help keep hardworking men and women more comfortable and confident in dangerous, demanding jobs around the world. In the event of a momentary electric arc flash, flash fire, combustible dust or molten metal splash exposure, everyday non-flame-resistant clothing can ignite and will continue to burn even after the source of ignition has been removed. Westex FR/AR fabric is the life-saving difference.
