Laundry and Care
Benchmark FR® garments will remain flame resistant for the life of the garment provided they are cared for properly. Our wash instructions are quite simple and mostly require that you leave out extra chemicals during the laundering process. Benchmark FR® garments can be home laundered, dry cleaned and industrial laundered.
Arc and flame clothing should be cleaned if they are soiled with contaminants or flammable material. All materials influencing flammability must be washed off the garments. Stains have no measurable impact and are considered safe. Do not be afraid to wash your Benchmark arc & flame resistant clothing, frequent washing is recommended to avoid soiling and to maintain peak flame resistant properties. (ASTM F2757)
