ALUMINIZED FABRIC EGLA 430 AL
ALUMINIZED FIBERGLASS FABRIC, THERMAL SHIELD.
EGLA 430 AL fabric is a flame retardant fiberglass fabric with an aluminized side. The fiberglass basis is from type E-Glass, with a thickness of 0,4 mm and a grammage of 430 gr/m2 and resists continuous work temperatures of 450ºC and peak temperatures up to 550ºC. The aluminized side conferes the features of thermal shield, protection before radiant heat sources and to a direct contact with flames to this fabric.
Thanks to its capability of thermal reflection, flame retardant fabric EGLA 430 AL can delimit areas with high temperatures by way of a curtain, for instance, in foundries. It is also suitable to use as a thermal protector or a flame retardant quilt, to delimit areas or cover objects that are sensitive to heat, high temperatures, fused metal splashes or even to isolate from fumes and gases.
Thanks to its good resistance with direct contact with flames, it is also an effective solution as an opaque curtain and even oven doors. Besides its features before fire, this is not a fabric that Texfire recommends for welding works.
This fabric has been tested in Texfire’s internal laboratories according to regulation UNE-EN ISO 15025 - Test method for limited flame spread – obtaining an A1-A2 classification. Regarding to performed tests of radiant and convective heat, it obtained a B1 result according to ISO 9151 - Determination of heat transmission when exposed to a flame. - and a C4 result according to ISO 6942 - Evaluation of materials and sets of materials when exposed to a radiant heat source.
- Fabric’s thickness 0,4 mm, 450 g/m2, useful width 150 cm.
- Resists continuous temperatures of 450ºC in continuous works and 550ºC in working peaks.
- Fiberglass fiber with an aluminium sheet of 12 microns.
- Waterproof to water, oil and fumes.
- Effective thermal shield.
- Resists direct contact with flames.
