Oxinforce® has devoted itself in FR textiles R & D for over 30 years, taking pride in delivering customized solutions according to different needs.

Since December 1989, to ensure product safety, European Directive 89/686/EEC started implementing the requirement for personal protective equipment (PPE) to be tested and approved by a Notified Body and accredited with CE Marking.

Oxinforce® is a PPE member of British BTTG, all Oxinforce® products are tested in the UK and comply with the following standards:


EN 469: Protective Clothing for Firefighters
This norm describes its test methods and requirements towards PPE in the aspect of fire control within a given area. It lists general factors for consideration in terms of design as well as test methods for flame spread, heat transfer, residual strength and heat resistance property. Additional requirements include: tensile strength, tear strength, surface wetting, dimensional change, resistance to penetration by liquid chemicals, resistance to water penetration and water vapour.
EN 659: Protective Gloves for Firefighters
This norm describes test methods and requirements for fire gloves towards dangers such as extreme heat and flash burn in case of fire. It lists general factors for consideration in terms of design as well as test methods for abrasion resistance, cut resistance, puncture and tear resistance, as well as radiant heat and convective heat resistance. It also includes requirements in terms of leather contraction, seam strength and resistance to liquid chemical penetration.
EN 13911: Protective clothing for firefighters. Requirements and Test Methods for Fire Hoods for Firefighters
This norm lists FR requirements and test methods for Fire Hoods, including fitting evaluation for hood with respirator.
ISO 11612: Clothing Protecting against Heat and Flames
This norm sets out performance requirements in relation to heat and flame resistance (not suitable for welding and structure firefighting) such as flame spread (code letter A), convective heat (code letter B), radiant heat (code letter C), contact heat (code letter F) and molten metal splash (code letter E).
ISO 11611: Protective Clothing for Use in Welding and Allied Processes

This standard sets out requirements in terms of protection against minor splashes of molten metals during welding process.

Class 1: Prevent lower risks of welding, such as lower levels of spatter and radiant heat.

Class 2: Prevent higher risks of welding, such as higher levels of patter and radiant heat.
EN 1149-5: Protective Clothing - Electrostatic Properties
Performance requirements for protective clothing designed to dissipate static electricity in order to avoid sparks that may cause a fire or explosion.
IEC 61482-1-2: Protection against the Thermal Hazards of an Electric Arc (Box Test)

This standard sets out the specifications for materials and clothing designed to protect the wearer from the risks associated with electric arcs.
Two categories of protection are available:
Class 1:
Electric arc lasting time = 0.5 second, applied current = 4kA
Class 2:
Electric arc lasting time = 0.5 second, applied current = 7kA

Manikin Test
Manikin test is to cover the body of a 180cm tall manikin, which has 135 temperature sensors distributed all over the body, with fire protective clothing. The manikin is then exposed to a flame engulfment apparatus consisting of 12 burners giving a mean heat flux level of 84kW/m² for 8 seconds (for firefighters garments, 3-5 seconds for single layer coveralls), data is then collected from the 135 temperature sensors and used to calculated, predict and locate "percentage burn injury" at Pain, 1st, 2nd and 3rd degree levels. This is by far the most advanced burn injury evaluating system with real size manikins. It tests the level of protection of the garments by exposing the whole set of garments in real flame and simulating burn injury levels in real fire. With the result of this test, we can predict the probabilities of 2nd and 3rd degree burn injury on body. The lower the degree, the higher the chance of survival.
CNS 10285 L3196 A-4 Method: Specified Requirements of Flame-Resistant Textile (A-4 method is commonly used in Taiwan for fire blanket)
Grade After Flame Time(s) After Glow Time(s) Char Length (cm)
Grade 1 < 2 < 7.5 < 10
Grade 2 < 5 < 15 < 15
Others > 5 > 15 > 15
