Features of Otterlayer foundry and aluminized bib aprons:

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

The key to Aluminized Reflex's protective qualities is the speed and ease in which molten metal droplets can roll away from its surface. This is due to the unique way the fabric is built. Aluminized ReflexTM is composed of a series of layers, starting with a silicone-coated base layer, followed by aluminum pigments and finished with a lacquer coating. If molten metal hits the fabric, it will meet the lacquer layer which protects the aluminum pigments from melting. The surface remains smooth instead of forming the mounds that can trap the molten metal.

Protective properties of aluminized Reflex clothing material:

  • Light, comfortable and flexible
  • Unique construction which provides outstanding resistance to molten metal splash
  • High contact heat resistance
  • Limited abrasion resistance
  • Protects against molten aluminum and molten iron
  • Great for radiant heat protection - up to 2000°F

Fabric composition and characteristics:

  • 70% PANOX® and 30% para-aramid
  • Fabric Weight: 9 oz. / sq. yd.
