These welding blankets are designed to protect workers at steel mills and other molten metal environments from severe heat injuries from molten metal splash, metal-cutting, welding, arc flash or potential exposure to intense heat. This personal protective equipment has applications in the nuclear, automotive, heat treating, military, primary metals, foundry and metal fabrication industries. Our customers are constantly finding new uses wherever there is potential exposure to hot metal … and even superheated exhaust.

Torch Wear® Ultimate Blankets are made with patented CarbonX flame resistant fabric, which when exposed to intense heat or flame will carbonize and then expand, dramatically reducing the oxygen content within the fabric. Unlike many of the most widely used fire-retarant fabrics currently available, CarbonX will not char, shrink or burn when exposed to heat and flame. CarbonX fabric is not a chemically treated material. Rather, it is a yarn created by spinning oxidized polycarbonitrile fiber with an Aramid strengthening agent. The blankets provide two layers of CarbonX fabric protection and a layer of durable Twaron® aramid fiber to provide arbrasion resistance. They can be employed as firewalls and insulation. (Blankets are employed with yellow Twaron fabric towards personnel.)

Torch Wear blankets also offer protection from electrical arc explosion (arc flash). When used as an arc suppression blanket, they can provide a barrier from peripheral arcs, and have been rated to over 100 cal/cm2, NFPA 70E.
