NFPA 2112 Explained
NFPA 2112 provides minimum performance criteria and sets clear guidelines for minimum design, performance, certification requirements and test methods for Flame Resistant garments for use in areas at risk from flash fires such as those where flammable gases or vapors, or combustible dusts might be present. The standard calls for flash fire testing to be conducted at three seconds with a pass/fail rate of 50% total body burn under ASTM F1930 (Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Flame Resistant Clothing for Protection Against Flash Fire Simulations Using an Instrumented Manikin) testing protocols.  All flash fire clothing wishing to comply with NFPA 2112 must meet the following criteria:
 All flame resistant clothing items must achieve a 50% or less predicted body burn
 All flame resistant clothing items must defy melting, dripping, or after-flame burning
 All flame resistant clothing items must have appropriate labeling in an easy-to-see location
 All flame resistant clothing items must meet each of the NFPA 2112 requirements and tests, and should be UL certified
The UL certification label should either be attached to the flame resistant garment label, or be positioned right next to it.
