If you’ve ever wondered if the flame resistance can be washed out of your arc-rated and flame resistant (AR / FR) clothing, you’re in good company – this is one of the top 3 questions we receive!
The short answer? Everything Tyndale sells – whether made or distributed by us – is guaranteed to maintain its flame resistance for the full service life of the garment. But what do we mean by “full service life”? Scott Margolin, Vice President of Technical, breaks it down:
As Scott explains, all garments we sell are made with protective fabrics that are permanently arc- and flame resistant – and that’s backed by our warranty.
Accordingly, the durability of flame resistance for garments purchased from Tyndale is not tied to a certain number of launderings; rather, the lifespan of your AR / FR garments from Tyndale are tied to the wear pattern and overall condition of the garment through time.
To ensure your garments perform and protect as expected, remember these 3 key things:
While some providers in the market sell garments with limited life spans on their flame resistance – creating risk or potential gaps in your protection, Tyndale is proud to provide products with permanent flame resistance that are vetted for quality and performance and backed by a complete warranty. That’s why it’s so important to partner with a trusted service provider.
