Kappler’s latest PPE garment innovation provides much-needed advancement for chemical plus flash-fire protection

Kappler introduces its new multi-hazard safety apparel, Zytron® 300 FR

Kappler, the Alabama-based protective clothing innovator and manufacturer, has introduced a critical new solution for industrial workers exposed to both chemical and flash-fire hazards.

The new multi-hazard safety apparel, Zytron® 300 FR, is the first to combine extensive chemical hold out with secondary flame-resistant (FR) protection in an economical garment.

“Zytron® 300 FR was developed to address increased OSHA scrutiny related to FR chemical protection,” said Kappler President and CEO Laura Kappler-Roberts. “Until now, workers exposed to flash-fire hazards had to choose between limited chemical protection or extremely expensive primary FR garments. Zytron® 300 FR solves this dilemma with a proven, budget-conscious solution.”

Tested against 200-plus chemicals, Zytron® 300 FR offers four times the chemical testing of suits typically used where chemical and flash fire hazards are present. In the event of a flash-fire, the chemical-protective outer layer won’t melt, drip or burn, thus maintaining the integrity of the NFPA 2112 primary FR workwear worn beneath.

In addition to extensive chemical testing, Zytron® 300 FR is also proven with demanding ASTM F1930 Pyroman Thermal Mannikin testing for flash-fire exposure.

Zytron® 300 FR is available in coverall, jacket, 3-piece ensemble, and apron styles to meet a wide range of hazardous applications. Zytron® 300 FR must be worn over NFPA 2112 workwear. For more information, visit or call 800-600-4019.
