Flexible, Easy to Drape Welding Protection

Z-Shield™ F-407 Salmon welding blankets are woven from Z-Fil™ Fiberglass Cloth and treated with a spark and flame resistant acrylic coating. Z-Shield™ Salmon welding blankets are flexible, easy to drape and handle, highly reusable, and well-suited for vertical spark protection. The salmon color is often recognized as an industry standard for welding blankets used in shipbuilding and ship repair. Newtex also offers a Berry Amendment compliant salmon welding blanket called Z-Shield F-475 Salmon.

The same lightweight Z-Shield™ F-407 welding fabric is also available in Black or Bull Dog Red. Though the Salmon fabric has historically been a top-seller, the Bull Dog Red welding fabric is becoming increasingly popular. The Salmon and Bull Dog Red welding fabrics are sold in 50 yard rolls. Newtex can also fabricate welding blankets to your custom requirements.

Z-Shield F-407 fabrics are the lightest weight welding blankets manufactured by Newtex. Sturdier midweight welding fabrics and heavyweight welding fabrics are also available for applications where additional spark protection is necessary. All Z-Shield™ fabrics feature a high temperature acrylic coating that provides superior resistance to sparks, fire, and abrasion.

Z-Shield Lightweight Welding Fabric has been tested to the following standards:

  • Tested to the ANSI/FM 4950 Standard

Common Applications

  • Welding curtain material
  • Protection for ship repair and maintenance
  • Grinding and light welding protection
