Welding exposes different risks compared to other types of mechanical processing, therefore, clothing must necessarily be different.
We note like a lot of welders wear cotton suits that have undergone discolorations or, worse, burns to become uniferted within a few days of use.
The discoloration is due to the effect of UV rays as it happens when a cotton clothing head remains a lot of time exposed to the sun. To this are added the IR infrared rays that generate heat, the combination puts a hard testing the dpi and in particular all those who have a large surface like work suits.
If on one side the welder protects with leather aprons, gloves, screens and suitable footwear, on the other hand many parts of the body remain discovered that they fail to be sufficiently protected by the common sanforized cotton. UV rays and IR pass through the normal cotton fabric fibers, although heavy.
It is therefore necessary to provide themselves with welding protection clothing and connected proceedings.
For years we have been distributing the Siggi brand, a brand more and more branded in professional clothing, which has developed a light, robust, protective and homologated product.
Let's talk about the line Siggi Hitech Welding Mars. These are overalls, trousers, dungarees and jackets packaged with the new welding fabric Mars 100% cotton (320 gr / sqm - Twill 3/1), which guarantees a high level of quality because it consists of long fiber cotton. It also ensures a high level of comfort thanks to totally natural composition and particular fabric construction that favors mechanical tension.
This type of fabric has a high protective performance due to flame retardant treatment, internationally recognized patented process as one of the most functional fireproofing treatments for cotton and cotton mixes. The fabric after being treated with a particular chemical compound is subjected to a sophisticated technological process to let the flame retardant properties form in the structure of the treated tissue itself. The treatment penetrates deeply into the fiber of the fabric guaranteeing up to 100 washing cycles at 60 ° C for domestic wash and 75 ° C for industrial washing.
Who is recommended?
Welders and carpentry operators.
UNI EN ISO 11611: 2015 Class 1
Class 1: protects against less dangerous welding processes that can cause a reduced number of splashes and radiant heat - A1: limited propagation of flames
