Product Details

Otterlayer’s leggings LV2-APB with Velcro closure are flexible, economical and easy to store. They have a high-heat resistant strip of Velcro running vertically the full length of legging at the back.

Features of Otterlayer foundry and aluminized spring leggings:

  • Easy on-off using Velcro closure at back - wide Velcro strips running full length of leggings allow some adjustability for calf circumference
  • Metal instep bars help hold flare down to foot when wearing these leggings
  • 14” high from bottom to top of legging
  • 8.5” flare over top side of foot

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.
