Welding & Fire Protection

Poster Image of Welding & Fire Protection Application/Industry

Newtex manufactures a range of welding fabrics for welding safety and fire protection during light welding, grinding, heavy welding, metal cutting, stress relieving, and other applications where welding splatter and hot works operations pose serious fire hazards. Our advanced high temperature fabrics and proprietary high temperature coatings have been time-tested to provide superior resistance to extreme temperatures, abrasion, slag, and burn-through without the risk of toxic smoke outgassing.

In addition to selling welding fabrics as roll goods (50 linear yards), we can also fabricate welding blankets, welding curtains, or welding pads to meet your specific fire protection needs.

Application Description Recommended Products
Lightweight Spark Protection Lightweight, flexible welding fabrics like Z-Shield Salmon are often draped over equipment for spark protection during light welding and grinding.
Fire Blankets Fire-resistant fabrics like Zetex and Z-Sil can be used as a safety device to suffocate a fire and prevent it from spreading.
Welding Curtains Mid-weight to heavyweight welding curtain materials like Z-Sil and Z-Shield can be hung from frames by grommets for vertical spark protection.
Welding Blankets Mid-weight fabrics like Z-Shield Gold and Z-Sil Silica are often cut into 4’ x 4’, 6’ x 6’, or custom size welding blankets for covering, draping, or hanging to provide welding splatter protection.
Welding Pads The heavier range of ZetexPlus Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Fabrics (ZetexPlus A-1200 or A-2200) are fire-resistant, abrasion resistant, and heavy duty for horizontal welding splatter protection.
