Dromex® Poseidon 220 boilersuit is designed to protect the user from the hazards of accidental ﬂame contact and provides additional protection from arc ﬂash and static build up reducing injury and loss of life when working in hazardous environments such as reﬁneries, maritime, oil and gas industries and emergency response teams.
The Dromex® Poseidon 8cal/cm² rating on the garment is also suitable for use in category HRC (hazard risk category) 1 and 2 ARC related environments.
The 98% cotton, 2% anti-static satin weave ﬁnish, natural ﬁbre construction makes this garment lightweight, comfortable and breathable whilst maximizing wearer movement.
This garment is available in 4 diﬀerent colours, orange, red, royal blue and navy blue which consists of the following:
• Collared jacket with button closure and internal hanger loop. • Action back design with pleats for freedom of movement. • High visibility ﬂame retardant reﬂective tape on arms, shoulders and legs for enhanced visibility when working in poor lighting environments. • Concealed 2-way chunky zip with concealed press stud closure (above zip). • 2 Slanted chest pockets with YKK zip closure and slanted Monza ﬂaps. • 2 Open swing pockets and 2 inner side swing openings with concealed press stud closure. • 2 Large back pockets with double needle topstitching, curved ﬂap with triple needle topstitching and bartacked on stress point. • Sleeve pocket with Velcro closure ﬂap, pen division and Dromex® sidewinder on left arm. • A rear ruler/tool pocket on the right leg. • Inner elasticated waist for optimum ﬁt and ﬂexibility. • Adjustable sleeve cuﬀs with press stud closure prevents the risk of loose clothing caught in machinery and provides an adaptable ﬁt when worn over gloves. • Adjustable leg with press stud closure on the hem. • Seams with triple needle topstitching for added durability.
• IEC 61482-1-1 – Live working – Protective clothing against the thermal hazards of an electric arc – Open Arc Test Method. It determines the • Arc Thermal Protection Value (ATPV level) of the garment. The basic principle is that the ATPV of the garment must be higher than the Arc Flash energy.
• IEC 61482-1-2 – Live working – Protective clothing against the thermal hazards of an electric arc – Box Test Method. It determines the • Arc Protection Class Rating of the material or garment by using a constrained and directed arc:

• The following suggestions will help keep your garment safe, and neat: • Dromex® Poseidon garments can be cleaned by home cleaning or commercial laundering provided all the recommended conditions and setting are adhered to. • Should home procedures not remove contaminants, then dry cleaning is recommended. • Our recommended cleaning for these garments is as follows: • Flame Retardant garments should not be washed with personal non-ﬂame-retardant clothing to avoid contamination by ﬂammable materials. • Pre-treat greasy stains, collars/cuﬀ lines and wash the garment in hot water with a light cleaning solvent. • Do not use Hypochlorite bleach or detergents containing Hypochlorite bleach. • Chlorine bleach may cause fading and reduce fabric strength. • Do not overload home laundry equipment. • Do not tumble dry garments. • Thoroughly rinse the garment to remove any wetting agents. • Do not hang in direct sun. • Sunlight can cause fading and reduce fabric strength. • Iron the garment to enhance and re-generate the ﬁnish eﬀect. • Do not iron on reﬂective tape. • When using commercial laundry aids, be sure to read and carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
