Flame-Resistant and Chemical-Splash Protection Lab Coats

By nature, laboratories are home to numerous fire hazards and, even when proper precautions are taken, accidents can and do happen. When regular clothing or lab coats that aren’t flame resistant (FR) are exposed to flame, they can ignite and burn, greatly increasing the wearer’s risk of injury. Plus, the wide variety of liquid chemicals present in labs poses a significant threat of chemical splash burns to laboratory workers.

If an accident does occur, wearing FR and chemical-splash protective lab coats provides the best chance for minimizing burn injuries — as well as avoiding lawsuits, increased insurance costs, reputation damage and loss of valuable research funding.
