WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Elliotts have an extensive range of products manufactured from high-temperature resistant fabrics designed to protect workers, plant, and equipment from the hazards associated with welding and fabrication processes.
A Welding Blanket is designed to encapsulate a metal object that has been subjected to heat treatment either through stress relieving or welding. The blanket retards the cooling rates contributing towards the non-hardening and possible subsequent embrittlement in the Heat Effected Zone (HEZ).
Elliotts offers welding blankets manufactured from two fabrics, HeatShield® and T1000®.
A welding drape is designed to be placed over or cover an object that cannot be moved. It is positioned in such a way, that welding spatter and dross, cannot cause damage to the job. The positioning of the drape is of utmost importance. It should be arranged loosely over the object to enhance the runoff of welding spatter and dross.
A welding drape can also be used as a curtain or screen where a more robust material is required.
Elliotts welding drapes are available in Leather, NeoWeld® and Silica Glass.
