In 2014, Allendale Fibertech introduced a product , which we call Pyrotecto™ for the consumer as well as professional markets. The base Fabric is made from 100% fiberglass, which is coated with a water repellent Silicone coating. This unique design allows for many creative applications.
- Valve covers – Insulation pads – Welding Blanket for light welding or vertical surface protection – Fire Blanket – Hearth Rug - Tarp - Grill Mat - Gasket – many other
As a Silicone Coated fireproof blanket, PyroProtecto finds many applications to increase safety in almost any environment: Its unique design (fireproof and water repellent) makes it also ideal for outdoor applications. The coating also locks in the fiber, and you therefore do not feel the itch from fiberglass, as you would from other fiberglass fabrics. It is easy to cut with a sharp knife, which allows you to modify it for your personalized needs.

Instructions and Note of Caution
Placing a stove, smoker, or fire pit on the PyroProtecto grill mat We do not recommend this. While the PyroProtecto material itself is rated to withstand heat up to 500 F, it is much too thin to be effective as insulation or a heat barrier. Heat can transfer through the material to the surface below.
Cleaning the Grill Mat Use soap or detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Basically nothing will stick to the PyroProtecto surface, so an abrasive sponge or scrubber is not necessary, and may actually scratch the coating.
