Texfire’s range of fabrics for welding, composed by multi-layered flame retardant fabrics and coated fabrics, has been designed to provide the highest protection and safety to users and their environment in front of soft, medium or hard welding (TIG, MIG, Electrode, etc.) as well as in cutting operations (radial, oxycut, plasma, etc.), polish and grinding.
After analyzing the features of each kind of welding, as well as the composition of the metals usually practiced, Texfire is able to offer a collection of flame retardant fabrics resistant to sparks derived from welding and impacts of fused metals, those fabric are able to withstand temperatures between 500ºC and 1,300ºC.
All Texfire’s fabrics are tested in our internal laboratory and they have collected several years of experience in the marketplace. All of them are made with inherent flame retardant fibers, which means that their nuclei don’t lose this feature with use nor with time. Also, the coatings of silicone, aluminium, vermiculite and silice raise their performance in features like waterproofing, resistance to abrasion, resistance to high temperatures and even regarding thermal insulation.
