FR WELDING FABRIC WELS2
REVERSIBLE FABRIC FOR WELDING
WELS2 is a flame retardant fabric for welding, designed and manufactured by Texfire. Resists continuous temperatures of 300ºC and peak temperatures of 900ºC. It is a fabric composed by fiberglass, which adds mechanical resistance and flexibility, with a silicone coating for high temperatures in both sides that repels sparks and melted metal projections. Thus, WRLS2 fabric is completely impermeable to liquids and fumes, and can be used on both sides.
WELS2 welding fabric has been developed in order to protect before welding sparks (TIG, MIG, Electrode...) cutting and grinding. It is a versatile fabric that can be used to delimit areas, as a curtain way, or to protect surfaces or objects, even from melted metal projections and splashed. Texfire recommends its use on a diagonal or vertical position. With a weight not higher than 600gsm, it is a very flexible and pliable fabric, easy to cut and handle because it does not “fray.” Besides its flame retardant features, WELS2 fabric is totally impermeable to liquids and fumes. Thus, it offers the same level of protection in both sides, which allows it to protect and work in 2 areas simultaneously.
The WELS2 obtains EN ISO 13501-1 certification in 2023 - Classification of the fire performance of construction products and building elements - achieving results A2 s1 d0. Additionally, it is certified in 2020 according to UNE 23727 standards - Reaction to fire of construction materials - with an M1 classification. Furthermore, it is certified according to UNE 13773 standards - Fire behavior of curtains and drapes - with a Class 1 classification. Moreover, it surpasses the EN ISO 9150 standard - Behavior of materials subjected to small splashes of molten metal - with a Class 1 classification.
