What is the use of explosion-proof clothing?
First of all, explosion-proof clothing must have a certain protective effect. The main sources of explosion damage are shrapnel and shock waves. Explosion-proof clothing is mainly capable of preventing shrapnel, which is similar to the principle of body armor. But the damage caused by the shock wave is great. It will pass through the explosion-proof suit and reach the internal organs. Even if the shrapnel does not cause penetrating injuries in a close range, the shock wave may also rupture the internal organs and blood vessels.
Secondly, in order to ensure the flexibility of the hands during the action, the hands are not protected. This is like what many people have seen on the TV. Why do bomb disposal experts clearly wear explosion-proof suits to dispose of bombs, but the hands still can The cause of the injury.
Therefore, the role of the explosion-proof suit is to prevent the impact of a certain degree of shrapnel, and you should consider the use of it when you encounter more powerful ammunition. Although explosion-proof suits cannot guarantee the absolute safety of bomb disposal personnel, they can increase the survival rate of bomb disposal personnel in the event of bomb disposal failure.
