The material has inherent flame protection and it is made from modacrylic, cotton and anti-static fibres. The surface is dirt, oil and water repellent. It is a heavier fabric than our ATHS fabric, but still provides great comfort with a soft reverse closest to the body. Thicker material provides better protection against electric arcs and these garments can withstand energy equivalent to a full 16.8 cal/cm2 in this protective layer. This fabric provides excellent heat insulation and prevents second-degree burns, it is quick drying and has excellent moisture management properties.

GXE is the new lightweight and flexible GORE-TEX 2-layer material providing greater freedom of movement for the wearer. It is waterproof and windproof as well as breathable, and the fabric remains light and flexible even in wet conditions. The GXE fabric is made of polyester and antistatic fibres with a flame-retardant and electric arc-protective laminate. The material has inherent flame protection in the sense that the flame-protective performance is included in the laminate. No flame retardant treatment of the outer textile is added. The fabric’s protective performance is exactly the same on the first day of usage as it would be after years of using and washing the garment. The high-visibility GXE fabric provides outstanding Multinorm protection and is certified for a wide range of hazards. The garments are electric arc-tested for both Box test and Open Arc, with very high ratings. The heat and flame protection also includes molten metal splash resistance. In addition, the fabric is approved for heavy welding class 2, has electrostatic properties and protects against liquid chemicals. Approved for 30 washes at 60°.

MAXIMISE YOUR ELECTRIC ARC PROTECTION - DRESS LAYER ON LAYER
GUIDE TO THE RIGHT FLAME PROTECTION
For you working in environments where flame protective garments are required there are strict rules on how to dress. Which protection you need is determined by an analysis off all potential hazards. We have a great assortment of flame protective garments to guarantee the right protection according to the latest European norms. Your safety is our top priority. We have also taken the electric arc protection one step further and conducted unique tests for specific clothing combinations.
To ensure the exact values the tests are made on all garments together, layer 1-3. It is not possible to calculate a correct value by adding the values of each garment.
If you wear several layers of flame protective garments you increase your protection when welding (EN ISO 11611) and also your protection against radiant heat, contact heat and splashed of molten iron (EN ISO 11612).
The table is updated ongoingly.
Examples of hazards that are investigated in a risk assessment are convective heat, high radial heat, flame contact, steam, molten metal, hot surfaces, high voltage, electric arc and static build-up.
Here you can read mote about the different flame certifications and how much protection you need in different occupations.
