CHOICE™ Aluminized Fabrics



Certified to NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition

The CHOICE™ line of aluminized fabrics meets and exceeds all the key protection standards typically associated with the use of aluminized fabrics for reflection of radiant heat and the shedding of molten metals.  With physical properties second to none, the durability and functionality of CHOICE™ aluminized fabrics have been proven repeatedly in demanding field trials. 

CHOICE™ aluminized fabrics are constructed in the time tested technique of adhering a thin polyester film with pure aluminum on both sides to a flame resistant textile substrate with a highly engineered adhesive system.  The entire manufacturing process is conducted in the USA without the use of solvents.
