ASTM WK64638

    Revision of F1506 - 18 Standard Performance Specification for Flame Resistant and Electric Arc Rated Protective Clothing Worn by Workers Exposed to Flames and Electric Arcs

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F1506 - 18

    Developed by Subcommittee: F18.65 | Committee F18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK64638

    1. Rationale

    There are two types of garments used in the industry. Garments used to provide protection from flames and arcs and those worn over these types of garments to protect the garments without adding additional protection from the flames and arcs. Creating definitions for primary protective garment and secondary protective garment, will enhance the technical working groups ability to modify and clarify the garment requirement of ASTM F1506 going forward.
