Product Details

Otterlayer high heat open back coat model C51-APB 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

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.
