Protective apparel provider Kappler announces the new Frontline 300, which combines chemical and flash-fire protection in a multi-use, single-exposure garment. This innovative garment is ideal for petrochemical line break situations, and was developed with detailed input from petrochemical safety officers, the company says. The result is a single-fabric solution for combined chemical/flash-fire protection, with an ensemble garment design that provides great versatility. Incorporating comparable protection to Kappler’s Zytron 300 chemical apparel, Frontline 300 provides excellent holdout for the most common hazards found in petrochemical industries. Kappler claims the new Frontline apparel also offers radiant heat protection that is far superior to other chemical/flash garments. This is a tremendous advantage to workers who can be exposed to temperatures reaching 1,900 degrees F (1,038 C) during a chemical flash-fire incident. Frontline 300 features an ensemble of hood, jacket and bib pants, which has proven to be the most versatile garment during line break and similar applications.
