*Helios sewing thread is suitable for use in heat and flame protective clothing according to EN 469, EN ISO 11612 and EN ISO 14116. It is not suitable for use in electrician and welder protective clothing due to the relatively low vertical resistance (< 105 Ω) the material can not keep down the possibility of electrical shock by contact with live electric conductors.
