With temperatures ranging from 1300°F to 6000°F, one small drop of molten metal splash on the skin could result in a serious injury. Professionals routinely working with these dangerous substances need a protective solution that can remarkably shed sparks, spill, and spatter while also standing up to extreme heat and direct flame.
The powerful furnaces that produce the molten metal pose some of the most hazardous burn risks imaginable. Even when workers do their job 100% correctly, suffering catastrophic burns is still a possibility. Add in the danger from accidents such as spills, equipment failures, and explosions, and the risks only increase.
Welders in steel plants are further exposed to the heat from the equipment they use and the danger of flying sparks. Moreover, the necessary chemical additives needed to make steel pose the risk of chemical burns as well.
CarbonX non-flammable fabrics and apparel mitigate these risks. Our fabrics are used in a range of PPE and FR clothes appropriate for steelworkers laboring in different jobs throughout the plant.
Our knit fabrics offer ultimate protection with unparalleled flexibility. Created to fit snugly against the skin, CarbonX baselayer solutions safeguard skin from burns while also keeping wearers cool by wicking away moisture.
Steelworkers exposed to higher risk hazards benefit from a second layer of protection: our woven fabrics are used in jackets, pants, aprons, full-body suits, and more. Also lightweight and breathable, this outer layer of FR clothing brings extra peace of mind to those who work in ultra-dangerous conditions.
Whether you’re in charge of safety or you’re a worker who labors in the belly of a steel mill, CarbonX PPE will bring you the added protection and peace of mind you’re looking for. Stay safe—choose CarbonX.
