This company like so many others have NEVER read ASTM D6413. It has NO pass/fail criteria! You cannot have flame resistance with JUST D6413 testing ONLY. This jacket will melt onto a worker in the event of a flash fire or electric arc and hurt or kill them. Amazing it is advertised in safety magazines.

It meets no flame resistance standard in the US.
