Acrylic Coated Fabrics for Welding Protection

Z-Shield™ Welding fabrics are used in industries like shipbuilding, power generation, chemical processing, and oil & gas to protect people and equipment from sparks, molten metal splatter, and hot works operations. Z-Shield™ Welding fabrics offer superior resistance to high temperatures up to 1000°F / 540°C, abrasion, slag, and burn-through without the risk of toxic smoke out-gassing.

We offer a variety of welding fabric styles to support applications ranging from light welding and grinding to heavy welding, metal cutting, and stress relieving.

  • Z-Shield™ Silver: These heavyweight welding fabrics are coated with reflective silver pigment on one side to reflect radiant energy while also providing welding spark protection.
  • Z-Shield™ Gold/Black: These mid-weight welding fabrics are sturdy and abrasion resistance, a good fit for the majority of welding applications.
  • Z-Shield™ Salmon: These lightweight welding fabrics are commonly used in welding curtains because they are flexible and easily draped.
  • Z-Shield™ Hull Board Facing: These lightweight fire resistant fabrics are intended for use as hull board covering or lagging for acoustic and thermal insulation and fireproofing.

In response to NFPA 51B, Z-shield™ Welding fabrics have been tested to meet ANSI / FM4950. The tests are intended to evaluate materials being used in hot works operations.

In addition to Z-Shield™, we manufacture a number of other high temperature roll goods that are commonly used for welding protection. Other options include:
