What is acid and alkali resistant fabric

- Sep 25, 2020-

Anti-acid and alkali fabrics are mainly used to prevent chemical agents such as acids and alkalis from harming the human body, extend the time for acid to penetrate from the surface of the clothing to the skin, so that the acid does not adhere to the surface of the clothing, and the clothing changes more strongly after the acid is corroded. It is small and can withstand strong acid pressure.


Mainly used in chemical, metallurgy, minerals, geology, electroplating, printing and dyeing, papermaking and other industries that are in contact with acid and alkali, chemical agents as protective clothing fabrics.


The anti-acid and alkali fabric has good air permeability and is impermeable to acid and alkali liquids, oil and water, has long acid penetration resistance, high acid pressure resistance and low leaching rate, etc. Good acid and alkali resistance, and has a good protection function for practitioners . Meet the requirements of EN13034 "Protective Clothing-Anti-Chemical Liquids".


Classification of anti-acid and alkali fabrics:


1. Ordinary anti-acid and alkali: The anti-acid and alkali process is added when the fabric is made, and the surface is no different from ordinary fabrics. Suitable for general acid-base environment.


2. Severely anti-acid and alkali: On the basis of ordinary anti-acid and alkali fabrics, it is coated with a strong anti-acid and alkali function. Suitable for high concentration acid and alkali environment.


Touchstone's anti-acid and alkali fabric is made of polyester-cotton blended fabric or 100% natural synthetic fiber fabric finished by anti-acid and alkali process. It overcomes the shortcomings of using rubber or plastic as the base material, such as airtightness, bulkiness, and poor comfort, and is suitable for working environments with mild to moderate pH. It can effectively avoid the splash and penetration of acid and alkali liquids on the human body, and has excellent performance of long acid resistance and high acid pressure resistance, and is suitable for use by operators who have been exposed to acid and alkali for a long time. Its quality and protection performance meet the requirements of EU EN14325, EN13034, and EN368 standards.
