Materials Commonly Used for Workwear Production

June 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 208

Consumers often shop based on brand names and trends. While it is not entirely wrong to do so, it would be wiser if consumers will also examine other details related to the products that they buy. This is especially true when buying a workwear that is meant to be worn by someone who has to perform a very specific job. In such cases, it is extremely important for the consumer to examine the kind of materials used in the production of the product since its composition can greatly determine its efficacy in providing safety and protection to the person wearing it.

Different clothing materials work best in different environments. This means that a workwear that can provide enough safety and protection to a construction worker may not be able to provide the same level of protection to a miner, or vice versa. On top of the design of the workwear, the amount of safety and protection that it can provide is largely determined by the materials and the technology used in its production. Examples of such materials are:

1. Kevlar

This material is considered to be the best material to be used in manufacturing workwear used in the industry. Kevlar is known to be the toughest material suitable for clothing. It is resistant to punctures, cuts and abrasions. It is about five times lighter than steel making it more practical for the production of workwears such as jackets, trousers, sleeves, gloves and hard hats.

2. Polyurethane Foam

Otherwise known as Foamed PU, this material is mostly used in the production of workwear worn in environments with extreme temperatures. It can effectively provide safety and protection to someone exposed to temperatures between -418 and 356 degrees Fahrenheit. Another remarkable characteristic of foamed PU is its high flexibility. It can be moulded into different shapes of different sizes and still maintain its durability. The characteristics of Foamed PU make this material perfect for workwears worn by those who need protection from extreme temperatures (whether extreme cold or heat) without having to compromise their mobility.

3. Fleece

Fleece is usually used to manufacture workwear used in cold environments. The innate characteristics and properties of fleece enable this material to confine as much body heat as possible, thus keeping the worker warm. In fact, fleece can still provide body heat insulation even when it is wet -- a characteristic that is exclusive to fleece alone. Examples of workwears usually made from fleece are neck warmers, bonnets, jackets, gilets, gloves, body-warmers and hats.

4. Knitted Nylon

This material is usually used for workwears that require constant cleaning. Unlike the other materials mentioned above, knitted nylon does not easily deteriorate with frequent washing and cleaning.

Make it a point to examine each and every workwear you plan to purchase. Don't be fooled by brand alone. Remember, it's not the label outside that will protect you, it's the materials inside. For more details, please visit this link: safety workwear
