    1. What is "FR clothing"?

    2. Carrrrfartts NEVER wear out!! :evil:
    If I'm not mistaken, FR stands for Fire retardent treated clothing. Lot's companies require them for uniform clothing in some environments. I still have some left over from my time working as a mechanic in the oilfield.

    The uniform company that serviced our uniforms took care of ours. From my understanding, the clothing had to be re-treated after so many washings.
    Yes! "FR" means it's treated. After a time it washes out. Cotton itself is somewhat fire resistant, but will allow holes to form from embers, sparks and dross, but treatment can slow that. I'm sure a washing service would know that, but most people that wash their own often think they remain "FR" after washing. I use a spray starch on my welding shirts and coats after wash.

    Aha!

    OK, I had to wear fire retardant cloth for the years I worked wildfires with the radio comms trailers.

    My USCG flight suits were Nomex.

    Out here by the lake!
    My brother gave me some FR clothes years ago when I was cooking the whole hogs at the renfest. Lighting the lump charcoal with a cactus burner resulted in lots of sparks flying. Before getting the long sleeved shirts & jackets my arms were catching hell. I have a Dragon Wear fleece jacket that bares many scars on the sleeved.
