Heat-resistant, flexible material protects nearby areas and equipment from heat, flame, sparks and weld spatter. These shields are made with a carbon fiber fabric that was developed from NASA technologies and is extremely resistant to fire and heat. The versatile blankets are soft and lightweight, providing incredible ease-of-use. They provide protection from direct contact with weld spatter and are perfect for covering finished surfaces such as automotive and OEM equipment applications. The tough, tear-resistant material stands up to heat, flame and molten metal. Easy to clean; just shake, vacuum or blow metal particles out.
