Key Characteristics.

RALPH Manikin Test. ThermGuard™ High Visibilty has been tested using the 2006 version of the "male" heat sensing manikin known as RALPH. This was developed at BTTG Fire Technology Services to comply with ISO 13506. The results below are expressed according to clause 9.5.3 of ISO 13506 which calculates the percentage burn injury. The test was conducted with 100% of the manikin being covered by the garments under test.

Test Evaluation. ThermGuard™ High Visibilty was tested in conjuction with a long sleeved vest and long johns, with a 4 second flame exposure time. The outer surface of the 2-layer coverall fabric had vapourised leaving a residue of small beads of material but the underlying substrate fabric was intact and flexible.
