Due to its low viscosity, handling molten aluminum requires the use of fabrics capable of repelling splashes.
Aluminum foundries are dangerous places, where workers need complete, effective protection from serious accidents that may happen. An essential part of this protection lies in the work garments they use.
Finding a technical fabric that offers a reasonable and long-lasting guarantee for good protection from molten aluminum splashes is complicated, given that its viscosity (even at its melting point of only 700°C) makes it easy for aluminium to stick to any fabric, which results in serious burns.
Marina Textil manufactures specific fabrics with natural fibres (comfort), whose textile composition is very solid (durability). This prevents molten aluminum from sticking to garments.
With its line of specific technical fabrics for aluminum foundries, Marina Textil offers protection from high-temperature foci, electrical discharges, radiant heat, electric arc, liquid chemical splashes and massive molten metal splashes. In addition, these fabrics may be made in high-visibility colours for monochromatic areas.
