PROTECTIVE FABRICS FOR THE IRON AND STEEL INDUSTRY

Iron and steel foundries demand fire resistant fabrics capable of repelling metal splashes at very high temperatures.

In iron and steel foundries (steel and ironworks), where metals are handled at a melting point of approximately 1,400°C, it is required that operators wear effective protection that is capable of resisting molten metal splashes. In contrast to aluminium foundries, high iron or steel temperatures, as well as the viscosity of these metals when in their liquid state, support the repellancy of fabrics against potential molten metal splashes. However, due to high temperatures and due to the possibility that a sudden fire may start as a result of electric arc, the steel and iron industry is a dangerous environment.

Marina Textil offers innovative, pioneering solutions to this sector by promoting visibility in monochromatic spaces with high-visibility fabrics, as well as covering any needs for protection from high temperatures, radiant heat, contact heat, massive molten metal splashes, liquid chemical splashes, etc.

These are the flame retardant fabrics that Marina Textil has developed for the steel and iron industry. Click on any of them to find out more about their specifications.
