Sleeves for forearm protection

The aluminised sleeve offers excellent forearm protection, which is characterised by the following:

-          100% para-aramid (450 g/m2) Aratex fabric. Aratex is a fabric developed for protection against convective heat, metal splashes and contact heat, with low electrical conductivity and high chemical and cut resistance.

-          Aratex has a dual mirror aluminised system, which offers a double layer of protection to the worker in the event of breakage or wear of the exterior layer.

-          The adhesive used to join the aluminised layer and the base material (para-aramid) is made of silicone. Silicone prevents flames from spreading, does not emit gases if burned and is wonderfully resistant when in contact with hot metals.

-          Soft and flexible fabric, providing greater comfort.

-          Garments are light in order to ensure improved mobility.

-          The cuffs are adjustable at both ends using an interior elastic, which is functional for both fit and impenetrability against the entrance of molten metal particles and heat.

-          Broad forearm shielding.

-          Markings for this product are as follows:

o   Limited flame propagation: A1 (the surface can withstand a flame for 10 sec, and the post-combustion time is up to 2 sec.)

o   Convective heat: B1 (heat flow range from 4 to 10 seconds, 80 Kw/m3)

o   Radiant heat: C4 (heat flow range > 95 seconds at 20 Kw/m3)

o   Molten aluminium splashes: D3 (molten aluminium splashes of more than 350 grams)

o   Molten iron splashes: E3 (molten iron splashes of more than 200 grams)

o   Contact heat: F2 (conductive heat transfer time from 10 to 15 seconds at 250ºC)

Due to the characteristics of the sleeve from the Aratex aluminised line, it is recommended for use whenever you need forearm protection for sectors such as: smelting, metal industries, pyrotechnics, ovens, cement works, steelworks.
