Closed aluminised jacket
Aluminised Aratex three-quarter jacket is excellent protection for jobs such as smelting or pyrotechnics due to the following characteristics:
-100% para-aramid (450 g/m2) Aratex fabric. Aratex is a fabric developed for protection against convective heat, metal splashes and contact heat, with low electrical conductivity and high chemical and cut resistance.
-Aratex has a dual mirror aluminised system, which offers a double layer of protection to the worker in the event of breakage or wear of the exterior layer.
-The adhesive used to join the aluminised layer and the base material (para-aramid) is made of silicone. Silicone prevents flames from spreading, does not emit gases if burned and is wonderfully resistant when in contact with hot metals.
-Soft and flexible fabric, providing greater comfort.
-Garments are light in order to ensure improved mobility.
-Three-quarter jacket can be closed in front using snaps and velcro.
This type of closure not only helps with a good fit, but also with removing the garment even in times of low dexterity. (For example, when using aluminised gloves).
-The inside of the neck is lined with leather, a non-heat conductive and flame-retardant material that provides safety and comfort.
-The cuffs are adjustable using an interior elastic, which has a double function of improved fit and impenetrability by molten metal particles and heat.
-Four sizes available: S/M/L/XL
-Category 3 PPE.
-Marking as follows:
Limited flame propagation: A1 (the surface can withstand a flame for 10 sec, and the post-combustion time is up to 2 sec.)
Convective heat: B1 (heat flow range from 4 to 10 seconds, 80 Kw/m3)
Radiant heat: C4 (heat flow range > 95 seconds at 20 Kw/m3)
Molten aluminium splashes: D3 (molten aluminium splashes of more than 350 grams)
Molten iron splashes: E3 (molten iron splashes of more than 200 grams)
Contact heat: F2 (conductive heat transfer time from 10 to 15 seconds at 250ºC)
Due to the characteristics of the three-quarter jacket from the Aratex aluminised line, they are recommended for use in sectors such as: smelting, metal industries, pyrotechnics, ovens, cement works, steelworks.
