What are the recommendations for the selection of fireproof welding blankets?

1. In order to enhance the protective effect during operation, a multi-layer composite fire blanket should be used.

2. The fireproof welding blanket has been treated with different coatings to achieve different usage effects. Such as waterproof, abrasion resistance, corrosion resistance, oil resistance, temperature resistance and temperature resistance time, etc. The user should select the appropriate fire blanket according to the specific application requirements.

3. For covering objects and equipment, a soft and flexible fire blanket should be selected. If you cover large objects or equipment, you should choose a large fire blanket-covering tarpaulin.

4. Welding blankets with a thickness of less than 0.6mm should be used vertically to avoid sparks from penetrating the welding blanket; for horizontal use, a welding blanket with a thickness greater than 0.6mm should be selected.
