NASCO ArcWear™ and PetroWear™ brands are designed to provide multi-hazard protection while maximising safety, comfort and functionality.

We are product and hazard centric, offering only a select number of the world’s premium FR textiles in our standard and custom range. Our specialised FR solutions are engineered to meet or exceed internal and external Customer requirements.

Catastrophic accidents caused by electric arc, flash fire and molten metal can inflict severe second and third-degree burn injuries and in some instances, cause death. Arc flash and flash fire incidents are unexpected and uncontrolled events that can occur over a broad range of exposures. To ensure proper protection, corporations must perform hazard risk assessment analysis and install FR work wear programs based on the probable worst case exposure for a workplace task. When body burn injury is reduced, the survival rate for burn victims is significantly increased and the ability to preserve the victim’s quality of life is greatly enhanced.

Our select group of premium textiles comply with the testing requirements of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB) and European Standards (ENs). These organisations publish the world’s most authoritative standards for testing materials against a wide range of exposures. Their standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality.
