Polartec Wind Pro FR is 4 times more wind resistant than traditional fleece and the flame resistant fiber provides extreme flame protection. Velour or pebbled back efficiently traps air and provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio. Because it is not a laminate, Polartec Wind Pro FR is also highly breathable, maintaining 85% of the breathability of traditional fleece to keep you from over heating.
Flame resistant products pass specific ASTM tests that deem the fabric flame resistant. Flame resistant fabrics and garments provide protection against clothing ignition, sustained flame spread and do not melt or drip. The material resists ignition, self extinguishes and the FR properties last for the wearable life of the garment.
The NFPA has identified the various FR hazardous risk category levels, which range from HRC 1 (which is low risk and allows for 100% treated cotton), up to HRC 4 (which is high risk and requires FR clothing with a minimum arc rating of 40). each level, 1-4, is rated at a certain amount of flame resistance measured in cal/cm2.
