Heat, Fire & Smoke Resistant Fabrics
Z-Flex aluminized materials protect from extreme radiant heat, sparks, slag, and molten metal splash.
Zetex and ZetexPlus are the industry standard for thermal management & fire protection.
Z-Block is exceptionally resistant to fire, smoke, and adverse weather conditions.
Z-Shield acrylic coated fabrics protect from sparks and slag. Commonly used in welding and shipbuilding applications.
Z-Fil materials are strong and lightweight. Commonly used as facing & coating fabric.
Z-Sil is a flexible, high-silica fabric for the most extreme temperatures.
Aramid fabrics provide superior abrasion & puncture resistance. O-PAN, Rayon, and PBI offer comfort and insulation. Commonly used for PPE.
Z-Tuff silicone and PTFE coated products offer abrasion and heat resistance. Silicone provides better UV, water, and abrasion resistance.
Heat Resistant Materials
Newtex offers an impressive selection of high temperature fabrics including ones made from texturized fiberglass & filament fiberglass, silica, para-aramids & meta-aramids, and coated with Z-Shield acrylics, Z-Tuff silicone or PTFE, Z-Flex Multilayer Aluminization, and other treatments designed to improve high temperature performance and resistance to environmental conditions. These fabrics are used in a wide range of applications, including in the fabrication of personal protective apparel, to protect plants and equipment from sparks and molten metal splash, and to fabricate heat shields and insulation systems for machinery, engines, and industrial equipment.
