Ironclad Performance Wear Has Launched the World’s First NFPA 2112 Flash Fire Certified Glove in Partnership With Dupont™

Ironclad announced today, the release of the first glove in the world to pass NFPA 2112:2018 certification for flash fire protection.  Designed in partnership with DuPont™ Personal Protective Equipment, the Heatworx® Heavy Duty FR is an extremely advanced glove, featuring a molded silicone rubber palm and a shell made with 100% DuPont™ Kevlar®.  Designed for maximum dexterity plus the ability to handle hot items up to 600°F (315°C), the Heatworx Heavy Duty FR delivers complete heat and flame protection in one glove.

This glove was developed in response to a desperate need for an NFPA 2112 certified glove in the safety market.  Workers in hazardous locations that are at risk for lethal flash fire exposure – such as chemical processing plants, petrochemical refineries and drilling platforms – are required to wear FR garments certified to NFPA 2112:2018 for protection in the event of a flash fire incident.  Up until now they had no options for flash fire certified hand protection.  Now they can be fully protected with the Heatworx Heavy Duty FR glove.

The Heatworx Heavy Duty FR is the FIRST and ONLY NFPA 2112 certified glove in the world.

Ironclad’s General Manager, Eric Jaeger states, “We spent several months developing and testing this glove, which is based upon our award winning Heatworx glove platform, utilizing Dupont™ Kevlar® and Nomex® fabrics and yarns. We worked very closely with the certifying institution and testing laboratories just to refine the test methodology, which itself is new, so that gloves can be effectively measured and tested to flash fire requirements. This glove represents a definitive breakthrough in hand safety for millions of workers globally.  Ironclad plans to develop a full line of NFPA 2112 certified flash fire gloves, together with our partners at DuPont™.”
