AVShield™ Mid-Silica Fabrics are satin weave welding protection fabrics that have been engineered with a mid-range silica content for improved thermal properties compared to conventional fiberglass fabrics. A proprietary surface finish is applied to the fabrics to improved handling properties for end use applications. The degradation temperature of AVShield™ Mid-Silica Fabrics is over 2300°F (1260°C) which makes them an excellent choice for light to moderate hot work operations. AVShield™ Mid-Silica Fabrics can be easily fabricated into welding curtains and/or blankets. Its performance has been verified using a Propane and MAPP gas torch for 2 minutes with no burn through.
