Aluminium foundires are very dangerous environments whose people need effective and complete protection, to protect themselves from serious accidents that take place in this sector. A very important part from this protection is the workwear used. Marina Textil manufactures specific fabrics to guarantee this protection, obtained from natural fibers (comfort), with a very concrete fabric construction (durability) which avoids that the molten aluminium (700ºC) remains stuck in the user's garments.
It's not easy to find a technical fabric that offer reasonable and lasting guarantees of good protection against great aluminium splashes in fusion, since due to their low 700 ° C, the viscosity effects of aluminum in the manufacturing process causes sticking with extreme easy to almost all the fabrics of the market, causing serious burns.
Marina Textil, through its range of specific technical fabrics for aluminium foundries, offers protection against: high temperature focus, electric discharge, situations with radiant heat and to great molten metal splaches. Besides, these fabrics can be done in high visibility colors, for monochromatic spaces.
In steel or iron foundries, where the metal reaches temperatures of 1200°C approx., operators are required to carry an effective protection, able to resist impacts of metal splashes at high temperatures. Unlike aluminum foundries, the viscosity that the metal acquiries favours to repele easily the possible metal molten splashes. This behavior of the fabric, in the case of a reaction with H2O, means an important increment in the probabilities of avoiding death, if a worker is splashed in an incident.
Marina Textil offers cutting-edge and avant-garde solutions in this field. It resolves the need of having to be seen in monochromatic spaces, using High Visibility fabrics without losing protection at all as well as any other necessity of being protected against high temperatures, radiant heat or great metal splashes in critical workwear areas and, definitely, everything a foundry-man needs.
Every single different critical space in foundries such as melt shops, works in continuous foundry melting/laddle furnaces, steel flat carbon, electrolytic cells, primary aluminium smelters and so on, have been studied very carefully in order to find the proper protection. Continually, both study and monitoring remain active in our company with the aim of being always at the edge of finding the best solution against extreme risks.
