Proban®: The best available technology to protect against exposure to small droplets of hot metal or welding splatter
Garments produced from PROBAN® fabrics meet the requirements of
- EN ISO 11611 Protective clothing for use in welding and allied processes.
- ISO 9150 – protective clothing – determination of behaviour on impact of small splashes of molten metal.
- ISO 6942 set for class 1 and class 2 levels (provide good protection against heat and transfer radiation)
- EN 1149-2 when tested using the modified test atmosphere specified in EN ISO 11611
Proban® fabrics provide a high level of protection against UV radiation
This includes UVC which is emitted during modern welding techniques such as TIG, MIG, and Mig-Mag. Prevention of the penetration of the UV radiation through clothing is related to fabric construction (tightness of the weave) and fabric weight
