OXNARD, Calif. (March 1, 2016) — Workrite Uniform Company announces the launch of its new Workrite® FR/CP™ Lab Coat, which is the first of its kind to include both flame-resistant (FR) properties and chemical-splash protection (CP). In addition to simultaneous protection against thermal and chemical-splash laboratory hazards, the Workrite FR/CP Lab Coat also provides an unprecedented level of comfort and convenience, helping to promote safety through improved wearer compliance.

The Workrite FR/CP Lab Coat combines the FR properties of Nomex® IIIA fabric with Westex® ShieldTEC™, a proprietary chemical-splash protective technology. It provides protection against short-duration thermal incidents and emergency exposure to flame while resisting the penetration and wicking of inadvertent liquid chemical splashes.

In addition to providing protection against multiple hazards, the FR/CP Lab Coat is lightweight, durable and UL certified to NFPA 2112. Available in cuts for both men and women, the lab coats other key features include: splash-resistant pass-throughs; FR knit cuts that offer improved safety over typical open-cuff designs; a concealed snap front closure; a black lay-down collar to indicate chemical-splash protection; and three pockets, including two lower pockets with snap front closures.

The Workrite FR/CP Lab Coat will be available for purchase at www.workritefrcp.com in April 2016. To learn more about safety clothing and standards, visit www.workrite.com
