Newtex X20 Lightweight Proximity Suit

Newtex X20 Lightweight Proximity Suit

Manufacturer: Newtex

Product Code: X20

NEWTEX X20 LIGHTWEIGHT PROXIMITY SUIT
 


The X20 Lightweight Proximity Suit is designed to protect from radiant heat and minor molten metal splash. The X20 is fabricated with a Z-Flex® outer shell and is available with your choice of a standard FR cotton liner or an upgraded neoprene liner for added protection from hot steam, gas, and vapor.

The Z-Flex outer shell reflects 95% of radiant heat and withstands radiant temperatures up to 3000°F (1650°C). In addition to providing outstanding protection, Z-Flex is also the most durable aluminized material available and will not de-laminate under even the most demanding conditions.

This suit can be used in a wide range of industries including foundries, petrochemical plants, processing facilities, and other environments where workers are exposed to extreme radiant temperatures.

The X Series suits incorporate the latest apparel design features to provide outstanding flexibility, dexterity, and comfort while maximizing safety and efficiency. With more than a dozen options, we are certain that you will find an X Series suit that meets your requirements.

When selecting a proximity or fire entry suit, it is important to consider the convective, conductive, and radiant heat risks in your work area and the length of exposure to that heat. The advanced aluminized outer shell of the X Series suits provides the ultimate protection from radiant energy, the heat transmitted from all hot objects. The X Series also provides protection from conductive and convective heat. The level of conductive and convective protection increases with each suit as you move from the lightest suit to the heaviest.

The Thermal Protective Performance (TPP) graph above illustrates the relative protective values of the X Series suits in relation to each other. The TPP test exposes samples to convective and radiant heat sources and measures the heat transferred through the test specimen to calculate a tolerance time to 2nd degree burn. The levels of exposure are extreme and not representative of most real world scenarios. Real world industrial maintenance and emergency response environments are likely to be unpredictable and vary from test conditions. We recommend only professionally trained industrial workers and first responders use these suits under established safety protocols.
