The fabric PARATEX 460 ALP is a para-aramid fabric with a special fabric ligament which brings flexibility and good drapability. This fabric is aluminized with a thin layer of aluminum powder, which avoid foil cracking and improve the durability of the fabric. Para-aramid fibers turn it into an inherent flame retardant fabric, with high mechanical resistance, resistance to abrasion, cutting and vibrations. It also offers a good performance in high temperatures situations (up to 400ºC). The aluminized side of the fabric performs as a thermal shield before radiant and convective heat sources, in addition to protecting the para-aramid fibers from UV beams.

Aluminized fabric PARATEX 460 ALP is mainly designed to be used where high mechanical resistance or abrasion values are required, exposed to radiant or convective heat sources at high temperatures. It is used for welding robot covers or in metal foundries, hose, pipes or cable covers. PARATEX 460 ALP offers a great resistance to abrasion and cuttings, which turns it into a suitable fabric for personal protection equipment (PPEs), like gloves, aprons, neck covers… It can bear temperatures up to 200ºC in continuous working, arriving up to 500ºC in working peaks. It has a width of 1,1 mm, but it keeps a great flexibility.

PARATEX 460 ALP has been tested in tests performed in Texfire’s internal laboratories, meeting regulation ISO 15025, resistance limited to flames.

  • Place the aluminized side exposed to the heat source.
  • Avoid that the fabric’s internal side (the yellowish one) gets exposed to UV beams. Pararamid fibers are photosensitive.
  • Can be washed using a wet cloth.
  • Never use alcohols, solvents or detergents to wash it (flammable remains can remain).
  • It is recommended to store it always rolled as a tube in order to extend its useful life.
  • Avoid to expose the para-aramid fibers side to UV beams.
