Radiant Heat Reflective Fabrics



FlameShield™ Radiant heat reflective fabrics are available in the following groups:

  • Aluminum foil coated fiberglass
  • Aluminized PET film coated fiberglass
  • Aluminized PET film coated aramid
  • Stainless Steel foil coated fiberglass

These fabrics provide protection from radiant heat.  One side is coated with either an aluminum foil or aluminized PET film, or stainless steel foil.  Reflects more than 95% of the radiant heat that contacts its surface. Excellent radiant heat protection from sources such as super-hot metal slabs, proximity to liquid metal, infrared heaters, open flame / plasma or engine exhaust manifolds.

Can be cut into shapes and fastened into place with standard fasteners such as rivits, screws and bolts and also sewn with industrial sewing machines.


Aluminum Foil Coated Radiant Heat Reflective Fiberglass Fabric - MIL Spec


300°F / 149°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

FlameShield™ high temperature, heat resistant fabric is partially heat treated to remove organics, set the weave dimensionally and reduce fray and loose fibers.

Provides protection from radiant heat.  One side is coated with a 1 mil (.001”) thickness aluminum foil.  Reflects more than 95% of the radiant heat that contacts its surface. Excellent radiant heat protection from sources such as super-hot metal slabs, proximity to liquid metal, infrared heaters, open flame / plasma or engine exhaust manifolds.

Available in two temperature ratings based on type of laminating adhesive.

Used in marine and nuclear applications as a flange shield material due to its excellent vapor barrier and water/oil resistance.

Designed for long term continuous operation at 300°F / 149°C or 500°F / 260°C (intermittent 600°F / 315°C) this fabric will withstand short duration exposure up to 1115°F / 600°C.  The aluminum coating melts at 1220°F / 660°C, however it does take some time for the aluminum to absorb enough heat to melt - thereby it can withstand short exposure to the higher temperatures.

Fabric weight is 19.5 oz/sq/yd.  Roll widths available are 36, 48 and 60 inches..

This fabric is also available with a self-adhesive backing.  The adhesive is acrylic based, and will burn-off or vaporize at temperatures above 400°F.  If prolonged use of the self-adhesive fabric above 400°F is desired, then alternate securing methods such as fasteners, wire or clamps should be used.  Personnel should avoid inhaling fumes from the PSA.

Aluminum Film Coated Fiberglass Radiant Heat Reflective Fabric with Silicone Rubber Vapor Barrier


500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

Dual-Coat high temperature fabric is a high temperature, heat resistant dual coated (aluminum film one side - silicone rubber one side) fabric that  reflects radiant heat and is the perfect protection material for equipment covers such as cylinders bellows, that require a vapor barrier on the side opposite the heat reflecting side.

This heat reflective fabric reflects 95% or more of the radiant heat that contacts its surface.  Constructed from a high-temperature base fabric which is then coated with aluminum film or aluminum foil.

Designed for long term continuous operation at 500°F / 260°C, this fabric will withstand short duration exposure to higher temperatures.

Aluminized PET Film Coated Fiberglass Radiant Heat Reflective Fabric


400°F / 204°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

AluMaxTM high temperature, heat resistant poly-layered aluminized PET coated fabric reflects radiant heat and is the perfect protection for covering equipment that is in close proximity to intense radiant sources such as super-hot metal slabs, liquid and molten metals or glass, open flame/plasma or engine exhaust manifolds.  Excellent long term flexibility for use in garments, with or without liner materials.

This heat reflective fabric reflects 95% or more of the radiant heat that contacts its surface.  Constructed from a high-temperature base filament or texturized fiberglass fabric.

The base fabric will withstand continuous operation at 400°F / 204°C, this fabric will withstand short duration exposure up to 1115°F / 600°C and up to 3000°F / 1650°C for very short durations.  .

Available in the following base fabric weights:

                 Filament woven substrate: 8, 11, 15, 27 oz/sq/yd

                 Textrized woven substrate: 12.5, 22 and 26 oz/sq/yd.

This fabric is also available with a self-adhesive backing.  The adhesive is acrylic based, and will burn-off or vaporize at temperatures above 400°F.  If prolonged use of the self-adhesive fabric above 400°F is desired, then alternate securing methods such as fasteners, wire or clamps should be used.  Personnel should avoid inhaling fumes from the PSA.

Aluminized PET Film Coated Aramid Radiant Heat Reflective Fabric


400°F / 204°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

AluMaxTM high temperature, heat resistant poly-layered aluminized PET coated Aramid fabric reflects radiant heat and is the perfect protection for covering equipment that is in close proximity to intense radiant sources such as super-hot metal slabs, liquid and molten metals or glass, open flame/plasma or engine exhaust manifolds.  Excellent long term flexibility for use in garments, with or without liner materials.

This heat reflective fabric reflects 95% or more of the radiant heat that contacts its surface.  Constructed from a high-temperature base filament or texturized fiberglass fabric.

The base fabric will withstand continuous operation at 400°F / 204°C, this fabric will withstand short duration exposure up to 1115°F / 600°C and up to 3000°F / 1650°C for very short durations.  .

Available in the following base fabric weights:

                10, 19, 24 oz/sq/yd

This fabric is also available with a self-adhesive backing.  The adhesive is acrylic based, and will burn-off or vaporize at temperatures above 400°F.  If prolonged use of the self-adhesive fabric above 400°F is desired, then alternate securing methods such as fasteners, wire or clamps should be used.  Personnel should avoid inhaling fumes from the PSA.

Aramid Fabric with aluminized PET film coating high temperature heat resistant radiant reflective

Stainless Steel Foil Coated Radiant Heat Reflective Fiberglass Fabric


1000°F / 537°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent

FlameShield™ high temperature, heat resistant stainless steel foil coated fabric (stainless steel foil coated) reflects radiant heat and is the perfect protection for covering equipment that is in close proximity to intense radiant sources such as super-hot metal slabs, liquid and molten metals or glass, open flame/plasma or engine exhaust manifolds.

This heat reflective fabric reflects 95% or more of the radiant heat that contacts its surface.  Constructed from a high-temperature base fiberglass fabric which is then coated with one layer of .002" thick of highly-reflective polished stainless steel foil.

Designed for long term continuous operation at 1000°F / 520°C, this fabric will withstand short duration exposure up to 3000°F / 1650°C.
