For more than 40 years DuPont has developed technologies and lightweight, durable and comfortable products that significantly reduce the risk of burns in extreme conditions.

Originally developed for the military, Thermo-Man® is a life-size manikin burn simulation test. It allows us to measure the extent of burns in simulated conditions that reflect exposure to a fire in an environment that is as close as possible to reality.

In order to help you choose the garments which provide optimum thermal protection, we would like to invite you to attend the Arco / DuPont Thermo-Man® Seminar on September 27th or 28th in Linlithgow or October 4th or 5th in Hull. There will be 8 sessions proposed over the 4 days, we can welcome 40 people per session.

This seminar is aimed at health and safety personnel looking for heat and flame solutions, as well as arc flash solutions and is free of charge

The Seminar will cover
the following themes

An introduction to DuPont and Nomex® fibre solutions

Assessing and managing
your electric arc risk

Choosing the right
protective garments

Live Thermo-Man® demonstrations

During the seminar you will have the opportunity to burn your own Nomex® flame resistant garments on Thermo-Man®. However if you would like to do so, please note that the amount of tests we can perform are limited so an early request is advisable. The slots will be distributed on a first come first served basis. In case of interest we will send you an application form to be completed.

If for any reason we are not able to perform your test during the seminar, we will try to find time after the Seminar or look at a future date in our laboratory. Please fill in this registration form, which we invite you to complete and submit no later than September 16th 2016. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. A detailed programme will be sent out after we have received your registration form.
