Welcome to the ArcWear garment care guide. NASCO Industries is dedicated to providing not only high-quality protective fr arcwear but also detailed instructions to ensure their longevity and performance. The following guidelines are essential for the proper cleaning and maintenance of your ArcWear garments. Adhering to these instructions will ensure that the protective qualities of the clothing are maintained, and the garments remain effective and comfortable for a longer period. Remember, the way you care for your ArcWear garments plays a pivotal role in their durability and safety efficacy.
ArcWear garments may be safely laundered in front-end loading industrial-type machinery. Listed below are guidelines that may be helpful for proper cleaning and care of these garments.
- Do not use home or public washers to clean contaminated clothing. Doing so may contaminate other garments washed afterward.
- Use a front-loading washer or other type of machine that will allow washing without the use of an agitator. Top-loading agitating machines have the potential to reduce the longevity of the garment due to mechanical damage to the shell and/or the attachments. If a top-loading machine must be used, use the gentle cycle, which has a slower agitator speed, to avoid or minimize any damage from the agitator.
- Do not overload the machine.
- Launder separately from non-flame-resistant garments. Lint from these garments may affect flame resistance.
- To avoid possible staining of light-colored garments, dark garments should be sorted and washed separately from light-shades
- Fasten all closures, including pocket closures, all hooks and loops, snaps, zippers, hooks, and any other closures on the garment.
- Do not use any products containing Sodium Hypochlorite, such as chlorine bleach. Chlorine bleach may reduce garment life.
- Use warm water – 120°F is the maximum recommended.
- Do not dry clean.
- Do not dry garments in a dryer. Garments should be line-dried. Do not hang the garments in direct sunlight.
- Do not iron.
- Wash Temperature should not exceed 120°F
- Liquid detergents are recommended for best cleaning and color retention. Wash bath pH values should not exceed 9 to 10. Color loss, excessive shrinkage, and reduced garment life may result from repeated exposure to excessive temperature and pH in laundering.
In summary, caring for your ArcWear garments correctly is vital to their performance and longevity. By following the guidelines provided above, you can ensure that your garments remain in excellent condition, retaining their protective properties and comfort. Remember to always use appropriate laundry equipment and detergents, avoid practices that could degrade the fabric, and adhere to recommended washing and drying methods. Proper care not only extends the life of your ArcWear garments but also ensures ongoing protection and comfort during use.
