PR97 FR Shirt

Premium Multi-Hazard FR Protection: Molten Metal (Aluminium, Cryolite, Iron, Steel, Copper, Magnesium and Nickel), Flame, Radiant Heat, Convective Heat



PR97® is an internationally recognised brand, renowned for its superior protective and comfort benefits in protective clothing for the molten metals industry. Developed in conjunction with an internationally recognised research company and launched onto the market in 1997, PR97® was positioned then and still remains the world's best secondary clothing fabric for the aluminium smelting and hot metals industry. 

PR97® is a blend of natural fibres - Merino Wool and Lenzing™ FR, a cellulose fibre derived from wood pulp. The fibres are carefully blended then spun into yarns and woven to create a unique protective fabric, which sheds hot metals. The main benefit of PR97® is its superior protection against a variety of hot metals including aluminium, cryolite, iron, steel, copper, magnesium and nickel together with the related thermal hazards of radiant and convective heat and flame spread.

To this day, the superior protective properties of PR97® have not been surpassed. The fabric range also sets a new benchmark for wearer comfort by using only natural uncoated fibres; so their breathable, moisture wicking properties are maintained.

APPLICATION: Molten aluminium, cryolite, iron, steel, copper, magnesium and nickel, radiant and convective heat and flame spread.
