We offer launderable garments and accessories with high-performance flame resistance for radiological environments. Nuclear facility workers encounter a unique variety of potentially serious occupational hazards. Among them are burns from electric arcs, welding sparks, and other combustible hazards.
Radiation protection management must prescribe the proper Anti-C™ protective clothing to protect against any or all of these potential risks. Anti-C™ protective clothing must meet the burn safety criteria of OSHA Rule 29CFR Part 1910.269 and be compliant with NFPA standards 2112 and NFPA 70E.
As a pioneer in nuclear protective clothing products and services, UniTech has addressed these needs by researching fabrics that surpass the various protective and comfort requirements for nuclear workers. The culmination of our efforts is Anti-C/FR™ which reduces the fabric weight without sacrificing the protection. UniTech FR protective fabrics are made from 88% soft cotton and 12% high tenacity nylon fabric, offering a remarkably comfortable and yet durable garment with excellent decontamination factors.
- Anti-C/FR™ is the perfect solution for multi-hazard radiological environments.
- The 88% cotton/12% polyester blended fabric is breathable and comfortable.
- Garments are durably constructed and completely launderable.
Tested and Accepted:
- Anti-C/FR™ meets ASTM Ignitability Test Standards F1506 and F1002.
- The standard weight fabric assures compliance with OSHA Rule 1910.269.
- UniTech FR meets NFPA 70E Hazard Risk Categories 0, 1, and 2 as a single layer, and is available with ATPV values ranging from 8.2 to 25.
UniTech Flame-Resistant Coveralls
UniTech’s Anti-C/FR™ coveralls are created by applying a chemically reacted finish to an 88% cotton/12% nylon blend material. The result is soft and comfortable coveralls with excellent flame resistance that is retained for the life of the garment. The coveralls feature a brass zipper front, a breast pocket and a dosimeter tab. The 7.4 oz/yd2 material has an 8 ATPV or greater value, which exceeds NFPA 70E requirements for class 2, electrical safety in the workplace. The orange, launderable coverall is available in sizes Small-6XL.
UniTech Flame-Resistant Hoods
The 88% cotton/12% nylon blend material used to create the flame-resistant hood provides both excellent flame resistance and contamination protection. It is ideal for use in both welding and electrical arc hazard applications. The flame-resistant finish is guaranteed for the life of the hood. The two-paneled front fastens with a hook-and-loop closure, and the back of the hood has a 4″ elastic take-up that ensures a secure fit. The face opening is easily adjustable, assuring a comfortable fit even when the hood is worn without a respirator. Overall length: 18″. Measures 25″ at the shoulders. The orange hood is launderable.
UniTech Flame-Resistant Shoe Cover
Made of an 88% cotton/12% nylon blend material that exhibits excellent flame resistance, wearability, and protection against contamination. The flame-resistant finish is guaranteed for the life of the shoe cover. It is sewn with a Nomux thread. Elastic closure hugs the ankle for a secure fit. Dimensions: 15½”L x 18″H. One size fits all. The orange shoe covers are launderable.
ProTech Anti-C™ Coverall
UniTech’s yellow ProTech Anti-C™ coverall is made from ProTech fabric (99% nylon, 1% carbon).
ProTech fabric includes a nylon/carbon fiber, which significantly reduces static buildup to reduce particle adhesion and improve decontamination. The coverall has a zipper in the back to allow fall arrest equipment to be worn under the protective clothing. This coverall is available in sizes Small-6XL. It’s easy to put on and take off.
The ProTech Anti-C™ coverall is often used as an anti-contamination coverall for work with loose surface contamination. The coverall is designed to reduce heat stress with a built-in vent and raglan sleeves, and is rated for thermal loading as a zero in EPRI heat stress studies.
This coverall qualifies for NAFTA treatment, and is available for lease only in North America.
