Shipbuilding and Repair

shipbuilding-industryProtection from fire is critical in both shipbuilding and ship repair operations. AMI fabrics protect expensive equipment and surrounding areas in shipyards wherever hot work — welding, cutting, grinding — is performed. AMI has a full line of FM Approved hot work fabrics that are now required by NFPA 51B. Our heat resistant fabrics and fabricated gasketing materials are also used as heat containment on exhaust and heat distribution systems.

 

MEETING THE STANDARDS

AMI’s hot work fabrics meet the highest of government, military and industry standards, many of which are mandated requirements for performing hot work in the shipbuilding industry.

  • NFPA 51B – Standard for Fire Prevention During Welding, Cutting, and Other Hot Work (2009 & 2014 Edition)
  • API 2009 – Safe Welding, Cutting and Hot Work Practices in the Petroleum and Petrochemical Industries
  • MIL-C-24576A – Cloth, Silica Glass for Welding and Cutting Operations
  • MIL-C-20079H – Glass Cloth for Thermal Insulation Components
  • MIL-I-24244B – Insulation Material with Special Corrosion, Chloride and Fluoride Requirements
  • USCG164.009 – Test for Incombustibility
  • NRC 1.36 – Nuclear Regulatory Commission Standard
  • AWS ANSI Z49 – Safety in Welding, Cutting, and Allied Processes
