HKO Heat Protection Group presents at Thermprocess 2015 a special welding protection fabric for the application in the metal-working industry – Thermo-E-Glass fabric Weld guard splash & spark.
The fabric is characterized by a particularly high resistance to sparks, metal splashes and big drops of iron and aluminium. External test have shown that appr. 100 g liquid iron with a casting temperature of 1.400 °C did not adhere to the fabric. Appr. 150 g of liquid aluminium with a casting temperature of 760 °C could be removed easily from the fabric by tapping or peeling after cooling of the fabric.
The temperature resistance of the fabric is appr. 700 °C. An internal test of the HKO Heat Protection Group confirmed a resistance to puncture of 90 seconds at appr. 1.100 °C.
