Oil & Gas Industry

The Oil and Gas industry requires Personal Protective equipment and Flame Resistant clothing that protects workers exposed to flash fire, explosions, and operational related hazards. Oil and Gas workers operating under dangerous environments need specially produced high performance garments that provide thermal insulation in extreme heat situations.

Flash fires may occur in environments where fuel (typically dust or flammable gas) is mixed with air in a concentration suitable for combustion. Lack of understanding of Flash fire hazards and the threat to life involved in these extreme conditions was a common mistake made by many Oil and Gas companies throughout the world. Our personal protective equipment and fabrics provide the ultimate protection for workers' lives by fully meeting international standards of safety in FR clothing and also providing superior thermal insulation between the body and the heat source. Garments made out of inherent FR fabrics allow workers to escape from threading situations before the fabric starts igniting, melting or breaking open— situations that can easily aggravate injuries.

According to the NFPA 2112, "A fire that spreads rapidly through a diffuse fuel, such as dust, gas, or the vapors of an ignitable liquid, without the production of damaging pressure." Scenarios like this are not only expected in the oil industry, but, also in petrochemical, and chemical industries where diffuse fuel, gas, flammable solid and liquids are present.

Dimatex, Inc. excels in providing these crucial personal protective equipment, clothing and fabrics to clients looking for excellent FR protection.
