Don't Experiment with Your Safety - Choosing the Right Lab Coat
- Type: Live Webinar
Lab coats have been used for decades, but they have typically been made from polyester or polyester/cotton blends with the primary purpose being to keep foreign materials off of the clothing worn under the coat. However, due to the increase in awareness of the number of accidents and injuries related to fire and clothing ignition, the use of FR lab coats in research and commercial labs has become an increasingly important component to lab safety. In this webinar, we’ll take you through the basics of the chemical protection market, discuss common laboratory hazards and highlight the difference between FR and non-FR lab coats.
