True Color Grey - Work Clearer™

True Color Grey - Work Clearer!!™
     The REVOLUTIONARY new technology in Arc Flash protection is here!!
     Oberon is excited to announce the release of its full line of True Color Grey (TCG) Arc Flash protective products. From the 8 and 12 calorie ArcShields . . . to Arc Flash Hoods (models up to an incredible 100 calorie of protection). All featuring this new patented technology, patent number US9498382B2 .
     Back in the mid 1990s, Oberon developed arc flash faceshields and hoods that incorporated the Green-IR materials into our line. Remember, this is before the NFPA 70E-2000 standard, the standard that ushered in this era of PPE for utility, industry and contractor electrical workers. At the time, the Green-IR technology was a radical idea, allowing the worker’s PPE to protect against the radiant energy of an arc flash explosion. Unfortunately, this technology possessed a dark green tint, distorting the workers view of his task. Wire colors were distorted. Whites became green. Reds became black. Yet, it was the best technology available at the time. Work practices had to be altered to address this issue.
     I would hear over and over again when traveling in the field, “Why can’t you make an Arc Flash hood with a clearer window and the suits lighter and easier to wear??”
     Well, with the development of the InovexFRTM fabric system over 10 years ago, we have dramatically addressed the weight of the suits that the users must wear. The ARC100 suit (100+ calories), for example, is over 50% lighter than an FR Treated Cotton garment providing comparable protection.
     Creating a clearer window has been a challenge for our R&D team for years. We had great confidence in their talents since there is no company in this industry that knows plastic materials better than our R&D team.
     Success came in 2015!!
     The new TCG Series provides far better color definition & color acuity (CD/CA) than the previous Green-IR technology as well as excellent Visible Light Transmission (VLT).
     This is a technology that is EXCLUSIVELY available from Oberon.
     The advances of this technology will be obvious to you and your team. I would encourage you to witness for yourself the benefits of this REVOLUTIONARY technology.
