A full-scale test method for testing flammability and thermal protection of garments.

PyroManTM is typically used for evaluating fire fighters’ clothing and is performed using a mannequin which is dressed with the clothing to be tested.

The mannequin is placed in a test chamber with 8 burners placed in a circle at two different height levels. A flash fire is produced for a defined number of seconds and sensors on the mannequin measure the temperature on the “skin”, which is then calculated into a predicted burn injury level. The afterflame time of the clothing is also measured.

Trellchem EVO and Trellchem VPS-Flash was recently tested in the PyroManTM at NC State University, U.S. The Flash Fire was set for 4 seconds and the outstanding result, for both suits, was 0 seconds after flame and 0 % burn injuries! Watch the video below.

The main purpose of a chemical protective suit is to protect against hazardous chemical substances but this type of work environment also frequently produces a risk of encountering flammable liquids as well as explosive atmospheres, wherefore wearing a suit that has been tested and approved according to the toughest standards is important.
