Aluminium 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 aluminium 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 aluminium from sticking to garments.
With its line of specific technical fabrics for aluminium 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.
These are the fire resistant fabrics that Marina Textil has developed for aluminium foundries. Click on any of them to find out more about their specifications.
