MSA recently determined that Super-V Protective Caps may not comply with the CSA (Canadian Standards Association) penetration performance requirement for a Type II (top and lateral) protective helmet if subjected to a lateral penetration in a room temperature or elevated temperature condition. This affects all Super-V caps
manufactured before April 2017.
As a result of this condition, MSA is voluntarily recalling all Super-V helmets placed in service over the past five (5) years (April 2012 to April 2017). Super-V helmets placed in service before April
2012 (more than five (5) years ago) exceed MSA’s recommended useful life, as stated in the user
instructions, and should be discarded.
