Z-Flex Aluminized Gloves Provide Radiant Heat Protection up to 3000°F / 1650°C
The 300 Series Z-Flex® Aluminized Gloves are constructed from Z-Flex Aluminized Fabric. Z-Flex® reflects up to 95% of radiant energy while protecting from sparks, slag, and molten metal splash. In addition to aluminized gloves, Newtex manufactures a range of high temperature gloves with a variety of features to meet the demands of any high temperature environment.
Z-Flex® Aluminized Gloves protect from radiant temperatures up to 3000°F / 1650°C, however, the aluminized surface is not designed for direct contact with temperatures above 350°F / 175°C. These temperature ratings are guidelines and heavily dependent on the environment and application in which the heat resistant gloves are being used.
Aluminized gloves that feature a palm constructed from another material (Zetex®, ZetexPlus®, Leather, or Aramid) are popular because the aluminized back of the glove reflects heat while the palm and thumb can withstand direct contact with more extreme temperatures.
