ArcWear partners with product development engineers to create textiles, fibers, garments and personal protective equipment (PPE) solutions for electric arc and flash fire hazards. Our team of scientists has been specializing in arc flash PPE providing arc ratings, garment evaluations, arc testing and flame and thermal testing for over 25 years. ArcWear and Kinectrics have participated on all relevant technical standards committees (ASTM, IEC, NFPA, CSA, ANSI/ISEA and national standards) to provide the most up-to-date information to our customers. Our reputation for our quality testing, expertise and responsiveness is unsurpassed in the industry.
