Protective clothing - Assessment of resistance of materials to molten metal splash (ISO 9185:2007)
This International Standard specifies a method for assessing the heat penetration resistance of materials intended for use in clothing to protect against large splashes of molten metal. It provides specific procedures for assessing the effects of splashes of molten aluminium, molten cryolite, molten copper, molten iron and molten mild steel. The principle of the test method is applicable to a wider range of hot molten materials than those for which specific procedures are set out, provided that appropriate measures are applied to protect the test operator. It is important to note that good resistance of a material to a pure molten metal does not guarantee a good performance against any slag that can be present in a manufacturing process.
