Product Details

Otterlayer’s heat resistant foundry chaps LC4-APB provide economical and reliable protection to front side of legs of the wearer, while allowing some ventilation at the back. They have several adjustable straps that loop around back of legs to secure the chaps and provide proper fit.

Features of Otterlayer foundry and aluminized chaps:

  • Open back design allowing ventilation, protecting only from front and sides
  • Adjustable belt top
  • 3 adjustble straps per leg

Aluminized PBI is a knit blend of PBI® and para-aramid blend fibers with an aluminized coating. Despite being extremely lightweight and supple, aluminized PBI provides superior resistance to abrasions and chemical solvents. Its lighter weight and flexibility provide wearers with greater comfort and reduced fatigue.

On its own, PBI is an organic fiber with very unique properties. It was originally developed for NASA’s Project Apollo, in response to the need for greater heat protection. It does not burn in air, melt or emit toxic fumes. The addition of paraaramid blend provides extra strength and abrasion resistance.

Protective properties of aluminized PBI clothing material:

  • Light, comfortable and flexible
  • Can withstand very high contact temperatures - withstands contact with objects at temperatures of 800°F+
  • Excellent thermal, abrasion and chemical resistance
  • Radiant heat protection - up to 2000°F
  • Not recommended for heavy molten metal splash

Fabric composition and characteristics:

  • PBI® / para-aramid blend fibers with aluminum coating
  • Fabric Weight: 7 oz. / sq. yd.
