Miller Electric offers WeldX, an apparel line for personal welding protection that is lightweight and breathable, yet provides exceptional flame and spatter resistance. Sixty percent lighter than most leathers and also lighter than many flame resistant cotton garments, it represents the next generation in protecting welders from the hazards of heavy-duty welding, while also reducing the potential for heat stress-related injuries. Flame resistance is inherent to WeldX – laundering will not degrade its performance over time. The fabric consists of a blend of oxidized acrylic fibers and modern strengthening fibers, which are then treated with a proprietary compound that allows the resulting material to “shed” spatter and sparks upon contact. The proprietary compound is embedded into the individual fibers rather than being applied topically, allowing the garment to retain a high degree of pliability and maneuverability. In even the most extreme environments, WeldX will not burn, melt, ignite, or shrink. The garments are available as standard welding jackets, sleeves, cape sleeves, bibs, and aprons, offering a range of protection options for a variety of applications and industries.
