18" Safety Sleeves: 19 oz. Aluminized Carbon Kevlar®
Aluminized carbon para-aramid blend combines the strength, flexibility, heat resistance, and cut and abrasion resistance of carbon para-aramid blend, with the radiant heat protection of aluminized protective fabrics. The base fabric is a blend of para-aramid fiber and a carbon yarn. On its own, para-aramid blend is best known for its strength, excellent resistance to cuts and abrasions, and high contact heat. The carbon core further adds to the fabric's durability and chemical resistance, while also providing more flexibility and softness. Aluminized carbon para-aramid blend displays outstanding performance in tests for the EN ISO 11612 and ASTM F955 certifications. It resists both molten aluminum and iron splash, and achieves the highest classification for radiant heat protection. As aluminized primary protection, this fabric is an outstanding choice. Aluminized carbon para-aramid blend is well-suited for being made into jackets, coats, mitts, and other outer layer garments.
