We used to buy Nomex coveralls and coats when we poured off large quantities 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 information 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 this question with?
Thanks for any help.
