Westex ShieldCXP is a protective fabric (photo) that defends the wearer against hazards from both flames and inadvertent chemical splash, providing laboratory workers with a single-layer protective solution. Interactions with hazardous chemicals and flames are frequent in laboratories, so an effective protective coat must be properly worn to serve as a solution to multiple risks. Because other fabrics may only offer flame resistance without protection against toxic or corrosive chemicals, users often are required to layer separate garments. Westex ShieldCXP is capable of both flame and chemical resistance, ensuring proper protection and simplifying purchasing decisions for laboratory managers. — Milliken & Co., Spartanburg, S.C.
