We used to buy Nomex coveralls and coats when we poured off large quantitie
s of solvents- here is a site

Use in labs may be cost prohibitive-  these run $80.00-   I doubt all labs 
would think it a necessary PPE for normal lab applications.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Flame resistant PPE

After reviewing a pyrophorics safety video, a chemistry faculty member had 
this question:
>I think it would be good to provide people in our department with informat
ion on which lab coats are most flame resistant and where to purchase them.
 Do you guys have that information handy?

Various Google searches didn't produce anything particularly definitive in 
this regard. Does anyone know of a good source of information to answer thi
s question with?

Thanks for any help.
