The ROFA Arc Flash Clothing - Proban garments are all tested to 10kA for 1 sec, in an laboratory electrical Arc Flash. Temperatures in this arc reach over 20,000’C, and are reduced to a safe level before contact with the skin.
This 10kA/1sec rating is the highest level of protection to the European Standard. This is equal to a 37 Cal/cm2 APTC rating under NFPA-70E. This rating does change (become higher) when more garments are worn together.
Being tested to 10kA for 1sec, means that they are also able to sustain approximately 20Ka for 0.5sec or 50kA for around 0.05sec for example. Because they are only tested to 10kA, does not mean this is the maximum fault current they can be used for. There is an inverse relationship between time and arc flash power / energy (fault current).
