Aluminised Carbon Aramid CA340

Reflespace® technology is a unique aluminisation process offering the best molten metal splash protection today. The Reflespace range of aluminised fabrics incorporates the latest research and development to provide the ideal combination of protection, durability and comfort.

 

The Reflespace® range of aluminised fabrics is specially designed for Personal Protective Equipment Level 4: “high risks and extreme exposure to radiant heat”.

 

Reflespace Reflespace® technology advantages:

   • Excellent behaviour to ferrous and non-ferrous molten metal splashes

   • Outstanding mechanical resistance to abrasion, creasing and delamination → better life expectancy

   • Does not melt in contact with flames, heat or molten metals
   • Cleangard lacquer: protects and enhances the aluminium reflectance efficiency

   • Odourless

   • Comfortable and supple

 

Standards and Testing

   • All Reflespace® fabrics have undergone full ISO11612 testing by independent laboratories.

 

Reflespace® Applications

   • Foundries

   • Steel industries

   • Aluminium and non-ferrous metals industries

   • Glass industry

   • Cement works

   • Firefighters
