Product Details

Otterlayer’s heat resistant foundry bib apron A31-ATX is a great economical solution for high heat protection needs. With a simple design, consisting of a piece of specialty fabric with securely stitched edges, a neck loop and ties at sides for securing around back, these heat resistant aprons provide reliable protection from radiant and contact heat at a low cost.

Features of Otterlayer foundry and aluminized bib aprons:

  • Edges stitched for additional tear resistance
  • Ties at top around neck and at sides around back

Aluminized Trutex™ is a non-woven fabric with a para-aramid batting, OPF batting, and meta-aramid scrim which is coated with aluminum on one side. It is constructed using the time tested technique of adhering pure aluminum to both sides of a thin polyester film and adding it to a flame resistant textile substrate.

The base fabric is essentially a carbon para aramid blend which makes it very strong and tear-resistant. It has the characteristic pea green and black speckled appearance, yet has a soft, fleece-like texture.

Aluminized Trutex™ is a great choice for molten metal splash and radiant heat protection. It is relatively light and flexible, and garments made from it will be more comfortable to wear.

Protective properties of aluminized Trutex™ clothing material:

  • Lightweight, soft and flexible
  • Protects against both molten iron and aluminum splash
  • Very good thermal protection - withstands up to 400-600°F contact heat
  • Excellent radiant reflectivity
  • Radiant heat resistance - up to 2000°F

Fabric composition and characteristics:

  • Non-woven, para-aramid and OPF batting, meta-aramid scrim with aluminized layer
  • Fabric Weight: 10 oz. / sq. yd.
