Aluminized Rayon fabric reflects a high percentage of radiant heat and has good protection where heat is moderate and metal splash is minor.
Aluminized Preox® offers high thermal insulation while providing very good molten metal splash and radiant heat protection
Aluminized leather (AL) provides added protection against radiant heat and hot sparks and sheds molten metal better than leather alone. Outstanding wearing characteristics.
DuPont™ Kevlar® provides excellent protection in a light weight fabric that when equally weighted proves five times tougher than steel. KEVLAR®, the revolution in the field of synthetic fibers: resistance to heat and flame, high performance for rigidity and vibration absorption.
Aluminized Carbon Kevlar® (ACK) is a highly flexible high heat fabric consisting of blended CarbonX®® and Kevlar® fibers which together provide a superb combination of insulation and strength. Excellent abrasion resistance and hot-spot dispersion.
Aluminized Materials are excellent for industrial environments where hazards, such as high heat, molten metal or high-temperature steam exist. Workers are better protected by the unique insulation and heat reflective qualities of aluminized fabrics. With the ability to reflect radiant heat, these aluminized materials reduce the flow of convective or ambient heat by 50% or greater, and reduce high-heat transfer by shedding both ferrous and non-ferrous molten metals splashed on clothing.
Not sure which fabric is best for your environment? Contact us and ask for a test kit. The test simulates a molten splash so you can determine which fabrics will work for your employees under your plant conditions. We will be happy to send you fabrics and instructions for how to perform the test at your site. Please call us at 1-800-863-7733.
