Fyrepel offers many garments
with a choice of materials. These choices are Aluminized Glass, Aluminized Nomex® and
Aluminized Rayon. Each fabric has specific properties that help you decide your material
Aluminized Glass combines the
reflectivity of an aluminized outer surface with glass fabric. Glass fabric neither burns
nor supports combustion, and offers a combination or properties from high strength to fire
resistance. It is a stable material that will not stretch or shrink, even after exposure
to extremely high or low temperatures.
This material combines an
aluminized outer surface with Nomex®, an inherently flame resistant material of aramid
fiber by DuPont. Though considered expensive, it is very durable, proving to be a cost
effective material in the long run.
Aluminized Rayon combines an
aluminized outer surface with Rayon, which provides excellent insulation. It is a PFR
(Permanently Flame Resistant) material, which has been chemically treated to give it it's
flame resistant qualities.
Do Not Confuse Ambient,
Conductive and Radiant Heat
The following definitions are
given as reference in selecting the proper clothing for heat protection.
Ambient Heat - is surrounding atmospheric temperature in a given situation. Examples:
65°F-70°F (18°C-21°C) in an office; 2000°F (1093°C) in a fire walk.
Conductive Heat - is generated by direct contact with a hot surface. Examples: picking up
a burner block at 600°F (315°C); leaning against a furnace wall at 1000°F (538°C).
Radiant Heat - is generated by the sun or a source of fire, such as a fireplace or
furnace, and is absorbed by masses of material struck by the heat's rays. This is why it
is cooler in the shade on a sunny, hot day.
Improper use of these suits may
result in personal injury or death. Improper use includes, but is not limited to improper
selection, use without adequate training, disregard of the warnings and instructions
supplied with the suits and failure to inspect and maintain the suits.
