Product Details

Otterlayer high heat open back coat model C53-AX1 is a great primary protection layer for people that work in foundries and other environments where they need to be in the vicinity of extremely hot objects, including molten metals. The open back design is great for more controlled environments where exposure to heat and sparks or molten splash is limited to the front of the person. Most coats designed for use in foundries and other hot places are made of thick materials with limited or no breathability, making it uncomfortable to wear for a long time as heat and moisture (sweat) builds up under the coat, thus making a clear benefit of a coat with an open back.

Features of Otterlayer open back foundry and aluminized coats:

  • Coat closes at top over shoulders and does not cover the wearer's back and below, allowing significantly more air movement, reducing moisture buildup and helping the person stay cooler when the source of heat is at the front
  • Stand-up collar to protect part of the neck and reduce risk of sparks or particles from splashing under the collar
  • Sleeves have snaps at wrists, to tighten openings at wrists for better fit with gauntlet style gloves
  • Available in various lengths to accomodate different protective needs and allow combinations of full body protection that are most convenient and effective for a particular situation

CarbonX® is a high-performance, truly non-flammable fabric that will not burn, ignite or melt, and protects against molten metal splash, sparks, hot liquids and high temperatures. Through the Z-Flex® MLATM process or multilayer aluminization the CarbonX® base becomes coated with several layers of aluminum, protective films and high heat adhesives. If one layer breaks down, there is another available to protect.

At 10 oz. / sq. yd., Aluminized CarbonX® is among the lightest fabrics that can pass the ASTM F955 pour test for both aluminum and iron. It also receives high marks for radiant heat protection and aluminum and iron molten metal splash resistance according to the European standard EN ISO 11612.

Protective properties of aluminized CarbonX clothing material:

  • Lightweight, flexible and comfortable
  • Resists molten aluminum and iron splash
  • High temperature resistance - withstands over 800°F contact temperature
  • Radiant heat protection - up to 2000°F
  • Good insulation coefficient based on material thickness

Fabric composition and characteristics:

  • CarbonX®, a proprietary blend of highperformance fibers with Z-Flex® Multi-Layer Aluminization
  • Fabric Weight: 10 oz. / sq. yd
