WELDING FABRICS COMPARATIVE TABLE

Texfire's flame retardant technical welding fabrics are designed to protect from the impacts of incandescent metal particles and to have a better resistance. To design them we have considered the risks to which welder is exposed, as well as the different types of welding and cutting, offering excellent results: UNE 23727 - M1 and EN 13773 - Class 1. Also in the tests carried out in the internal laboratories They exceed the standards: EN ISO 9185 and EN ISO 11611.

They are permanent, flexible and very resistant flame retardant fabrics. Suitable to offer the highest safety and protection against sparks, metal slag and molten metal produced during welding and cutting works and related techniques. They incorporate an advanced silicone coating that prevents incandescent particles from sticking to the fabric, protecting and extending its service life.

These fabrics are available in three protection levels: soft solder, braze, and braze + thermal insulation. The following comparative table shows its composition, characteristics, method of use and applications:
