This 36in x 38in 12oz Duvytene fire safety blanket is the best balance of safety and cost. The serged edge prevents the material from unraveling.
We tested a wide variety of materials, thicknesses and treatments, including washed Duvytene blankets and lightly water-dampened materials. Through these tests we found for the price, you really can't beat 12oz Duvytene. See our test results -> See The Test Video Here
Duvytene is a thick, tightly woven 100% cotton material that has a super high temp resistance chemical added to it. That chemical will wash out even with just water. So try not to let your Duvytene get wet. If you ever think your safety towel's chemical treatment is gone, don't panic, just lightly dampen the material with water (ring it out as much as you can by hand - that is perfect). In our tests, a lightly dampened Duvytene, with no chemical treatment left, performed almost as well as the fully chemically treated material.
Not all blankets are the same size or cut exactly to size. The Monks cut and serge all of them by hand.
