||Report of an evaluation of 32 types of textile and 5 types of plastic materials used for protection during metal casting operations. A standard test method (ASTM F955), measuring heat flow during steel splash, was used. Two textiles showed the greatest resistance against steel splash and these were evaluated through field testing of approx. 50 garments at 8 steel companies employing continuous casting. The new protective garments were developed in collaboration with steel manufacturers. The material tests showed that it is necessary to have two layers in order to obtain sufficient protection against heavy splashes.
