Abstract Samples of over 70 different heat resistant fabrics were obtained and tested for flammability, thermal shrinkage, molten iron penetration and degradation. Other studies have sought to evaluate tensile strength, tearing strength, abrasion resistance, flexibility, air permeability, and thermal insulation value of the materials. A computer system was developed to handle the data generated from the studies. Information needed to define the performance criteria for such clothing was gathered through reviews of the literature, reports of industrial safety engineers, standards listed in ASTM Committee F23.80 on protective coverings, and from the manufacturers themselves.
