KHC-500 - American Sensors Corp.




The KHC-500 is an insulating outer jacket for the ASC sensors. It is custom-made using Kevlar material, and is recommended for high ambient condition applications.

This woven Kevlar fabric of an Arimid fiber blend over a carbon core yarn aluminized one side.

It is used against intense radiant heat from bright red, yellow, or orange material at relatively short range. It is resistant to reflected heat sources and offers thermal protection to 343°C (650°F).
