Title Study of the reduction of the signalling effect of protective clothing by wearing and cleaning
Original title Untersuchungen zur Minderung der Signalwirkung von Warnkleidung durch Verwendung und Reinigung [in German]
Bibliographic information Jan. 1995, No.1, p.6-10. Illus.
Abstract The luminance and reflection of protective clothing with signalling effect was measured after washing at a temperature of 60░C, exposure to rain and to temperatures ranging from plus 50░C to minus 30░C as well as after ironing at a temperature of 170░C and dry cleaning. In addition, the luminance and reflection of protective clothing were measured prior to wearing as well as after 6 and 12 months of wear during work on roads. Using and cleaning reduced the signalling effect of protective clothing. Basic material was found to lose its luminance sooner than reflective material.
