The SFI specification for driver's auto racing suits is 3.2A. This classification rates the length of time the selected racing suit offers protection from second degree burns in an approximation of a raging gasoline fire between 1,800 and 2,100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The SFI ratings are calculated in calories per unit area per time of exposure. The test performed by SFI on suits determines the Thermal Protection Performance (TPP) of the garment. The TPP rating measures the length of time the person wearing the garment can be exposed to a heat source (direct flame or radiant heat) before incurring a second degree (skin blistering) burn.

To calculate the protection time of a particular race suit, simply divide the TPP number by two to establish the approximate protection time in seconds. As shown in the chart below, there are several SFI ratings for driver's racing suits with different TPP ratings. The higher the SFI Spec and TPP Rating, the more protection the racing suit will provide.

SFI Race Suit Spec-----TPP-----Time to Second Degree Burn

3.2A/1---------------------------6----------------3 Seconds

3.2A/5--------------------------19---------------10 Seconds

3.2A/15-------------------------60---------------30 Seconds
