Join CAF and the Apparel Innovation Centre for a free one-hour webinar introducing the AIC's hot fluid and steam testing chamber, which tests the effectiveness of protective clothing against hot liquids and steam. This is one of the only testing chambers of its kind in the world, using a mannequin equipped with 110 sensors to determine if a human would suffer second or third degree burns when sprayed with water, steam or drilling fluids. More information on the specifics of this webinar will be available in the new year - stay tuned!
