EN 470-1 - CE certified workwear for welding and hot work

The standard has been withdrawn and replaced by EN ISO 11611. It is still allowed to sell garments certified to this standard, but no new garments will be certified.

Protective clothing certified according to EN 470-1 gives the wearer protection against small splashes of molten metal, and brief contact with flame. The garments certified to this standard are suitable for use in welding and allied processes.

The garments are tested to withstand at least 15 drops of molten metal, and have a maximum temperature rise of 40° C on the back of the fabric. Even limited flame spread is tested.
