Advanced Aluminized Protection
Z-Flex® Multi-Layer Aluminized fabrics are specifically designed for protective apparel and shields used in environments that pose serious fire risk or safety hazards associated with hot works or radiant heat sources.
The proprietary Multi-Layer Aluminization (MLA) process delivers outstanding reflectivity, durability and flex-bond. When deployed properly, protective gear made with Z-Flex® MLA reflects up to 95% of heat, with no organic flame contribution. Z-Flex® fabrics have been independently tested against the most demanding US & EN standards and have proven to consistently deliver superior performance against competitive offerings.
Fabric choices include texturized and filament E-glass, spun and core spun aramids, O-PAN / aramid blends, FR rayon, Nomex®, PBI and others. The temperature ratings of the base fabrics range from 500°F - 2000°F (260°C - 1095°C). Z-Flex® Aluminization resists radiant heat up to 3000°F (1650°C).
