    WK73228


    Keywords

    flame resistant; FR; heat resistant; protective clothing;;

    Rationale

    Due to COVID-19, there is a need to address cloth face coverings for workers in areas that require flame resistant protective clothing. The proposed changes to ASTM F2302 reflect similar proposed changes that apply to both ASTM F1506 (F18 Electrical Worker Protection) and NFPA 2112 (industrial flash fire protection). Only those areas of the standard indicated for change are being balloted, The proposed changes do not address the protection of the items as a medical face mask or imply any specific protective properties against bioaerosols.
