Welding fabric with reflective pigment for radiant heat protection

Z-Shield™ heavyweight welding fabrics are silver in color. They feature a substantial Zetex® fiberglass fabric base treated with a reflective silver acrylic coating. The Z-Shield™ Silver acrylic coating contains a silver pigment with reflective properties that reflect radiant heat while also protecting from sparks, extreme heat, and abrasion. 

The Z-Shield™ A-1220 Silver fabric combines the Z-Shield™ Silver coating with a Zetex® Steel™ wire fabric base. The Z-Shield™ A-1220 Silver style is ideal for applications that require a strong and vibration resistant welding fabric.

Z-Shield™ Silver heavyweight welding fabrics are only coated on one side. The silver side of the fabric should be positioned to face the heat source.

Z-Shield™ Silver heavyweight welding fabrics can withstand temperatures up to 1000°F / 540°C and protect from these high temperatures for a longer duration than lightweight and midweight welding fabrics.

Common Applications

  • Welding protection
  • Jacketing for multi-layer insulation systems
