Puvab AB has extensive experience in heat and flame protection, and have worked with protective wear against burns for more than 15 years. We use primarily inherent heat and flame protection (in approx. 85% of all products), which means that the heat and flame protection is embedded in the fibre. The remaining part (approx. 15%) is a nitrogen phosphorus compound named Proban or Pyrovatex. This flame retardant is also permanent and doesn’t wash out.
The most common question we get regarding washing, is whether you can damage the heat and flame protection in a garment by washing it. The answer is: No, you can never ruin it, as the protection is embedded in the fibre in the fabric. Many also ask if you can wash at home or have to use a laundry service. Washing at home is fine, however the advantage of using a laundry service is that they can also repair the garments if they break.
