In this webinar, Workrite Uniform Company discusses their latest safety innovation — a lab coat featuring Nomex® IIIA fabric and Westex® ShieldTEC, a proprietary, chemical-splash resistant technology.

The Nomex IIIA fabric prevents ignition during short-duration thermal incidents and exposure to flame, while Westex ShieldTEC repels and resists penetration and wicking of inadvertent, secondary liquid chemical splashes.The first of its kind, this new flame-resistant (FR) and chemical-splash protection (CP) lab coat helps ensure compliance by eliminating the need to wear both an FR lab coat and a chemical-resistant apron, while also being breathable and comfortable to wear.

Webinar attendees will learn about how this game-changing technology works to protect laboratory research workers from common safety hazards.
