Project: Insulated Jacket for Spray Gun – T5909


In manufacturing environments there are many instances where a sprayed substance is required for assembly. This is mostly some form of adhesive. The high temperature needed to heat these adhesives to a sprayable consistency can pose a safety threat to any employees near the machine. Also, the machine needs to be insulated to reach and maintain that temperature.


Materials are key to the solution. Fiber glass and Aramid materials are used in the construction of these insulating jackets; stainless steel Velcro and Kevlar thread also resist the heat. Each product is custom designed to provide a tight and contoured fit to each unit. The jacket provides a protective barrier for the heat and helps to prevent injuries to the operators.
