safety products lineman safety utility safety CRC

Utility safety: CRC introduces non-DEET formula FR Clothing Insect Repellent for the treatment of flame resistant clothing to provide a barrier against mosquitoes, gnats, chiggers, ticks, biting flies and other flying insects. CRC recommends it be used by any outdoor utility/petrochemical worker that is exposed to insects and wears flame resistant clothing for protection.

Our non-flammable formula contains Permethrin, a contact insecticide that not only repels but kills ticks and mosquitoes that come in contact with treated clothing, helping to prevent deadly diseases. This long lasting formula binds to any fabric. It protects up to two weeks even through washing. The convenient aerosol packaging allows for easy and controlled application but is not to be used on skin.

CRC’s FR Clothing Insect Repellent has been tested to ensure that it will not damage or negatively affect the protection properties of flame resistant clothing. It conforms to ASTM F2621-06 Standard Practice for Determining Response Characteristics and Design Integrity of Arc Rated Finished Products in an Electric Arc Exposure.

CRC’s FR Clothing Insect Repellent is available in an 8 oz aerosol package (part #14036).
