¹ Shirt fabric weights > 237gsm/7.0oz are for specific applications which end users must determine.
² Available in UltraSoft AC® Style 0901 3 x 1 Twill 237gsm/7.0oz | ATPV 8.3 cal/cm2 | 20.5% Body Burn.
³ Available in UltraSoft AC® Style 0951 3 x 1 Twill 305gsm/9.0oz | ATPV 11.7 cal/cm2 | 13.4 % Body Burn.
A minimum weight of 305gsm/9.0oz is typically recommended for light welding/cutting operations and 407gsm/12.0oz or heavier for most other foundry and molten metal applications. In general, heavier weights will provide better insulation from heat transfer but the end user must determine the most appropriate weight for their application.
