Heat-Resistant Protective Blankets

A new line of industrial heat-resistant blankets are designed to protect workers from severe heat injuries from molten-metal splash, metal-cutting, welding, arc flash or potential exposure to intense heat. This personal protective equipment has applications in the nuclear, automotive, heat-treating, military, primary metals, foundry and metal-fabrication industries. Torch Wear® Ultimate Blankets are made with patented CarbonX® flame-resistant fabric, which when exposed to intense heat or flame will carbonize and then expand, dramatically reducing the oxygen content within the fabric. The blankets provide two layers of Carbonex fabric protection and a layer of durable Twaron® aramid fiber to provide abrasion resistance. They can be employed as firewalls and insulation.
