Aluminized clothing has a wide range of applications in the industrial setting, especially where such hazards as high heat or molten metal exist. Along with the ability to reflect 95% of radiant heat, aluminized fabrics reduce the flow of ambient heat by 50% versus non aluminized fabric. Aluminized clothing helps shed both ferrous and non ferrous molten metals.
A WORD OF CAUTION: DO NOT CONFUSE AMBIENT, CONDUCTIVE AND RADIANT HEAT! Click HERE to see what is given as a reference as well as vital assistance in selecting the proper clothing for heat protection: Ambient Heat is the surrounding atmospheric temperature in a given situation. Examples: 65º-70ºF in an office; 2000ºF in a fire walk. Conductive Heat is generated by direct contact with a hot surface. Examples: picking up a burner block at 600ºF; leaning against a furnace wall at 1000ºF. Radiant Heat is generated by the sun or a source of fire, such as a fireplace or furnace, and is absorbed by masses of material struck by the heat’s rays. (This is why it is cooler in the shade on a hot day.)
