Elevated temperatures are factors causing harm to human health and life. To ensure protection, various personal protective equipment is used, which includes special protective clothing. The article discusses the heat-shielding indicators of the safety of textile material. In order to determine the heat-shielding properties of the material, various types of exposure are used – convective heat from a heating element and an open flame. Fabrics of various raw materials and surface density are used

The research was held under the exposure of an open flame and convective heat of heating element with a comparable heat flux density equal to 80 kW/m². Also, research was held under influence of multiple wash cycles on radiant heat transfer index and heat transfer index.
