Both garments are flame resistant and are constructed with flame resistant fabric, meeting requirements specified in ASTM-F2302-8 for labeling protective clothing as flame resistant.

Flame resistant clothing, often worn by electricians who may be exposed to momentary electric arcs, must meet ASTM F1506, the standard performance specification for flame resistant and arc rated textile materials for wearing apparel for use by electrical workers exposed to momentary electric arc and related thermal hazards. Wolverine’s Flame Resistant clothing meets this standard.
