F903 are the standard methods of testing used for chemically resistant workwear. Chemically-resistant workwear can come in various forms but are more commonly seen in footwear, such as rubber boots or rain gear. If you’re a person who works with or around corrosive liquids, or any variety of chemicals, you already understand the necessity for supreme body protection. Areas such as hands, legs, eyes, face and torso should be completely protected.

The ASTM F903 standard test methods are evaluated on finished items and specimens of protective clothing that include coats, boots, gloves, pants, bibs, and coveralls to name a few.

Staying Dry is the Key with Today’s High-Tech Fabrics

Layer To Stay Dryer

We already know that layering clothing is the best way to stay warm in cold weather, right? And with advances in fabric technology over the last 10 to 15 years, today’s cold weather warriors can now utilize all layers to help keep skin dry – even with flame-resistant workwear.

Remember, effective layering means starting with a base layer that wicks (pulls) moisture away from the body, a middle layer that insulates and an outer layer that keeps out the wind and water. Until recently, silk and wool were considered the best moisture-wicking fabrics. And they are still good choices, especially for those who prefer natural fibers. But moisture-wicking technology has improved dramatically with innovative new synthetic fabrics and blends. Continue Reading…
