Class 4 Orange Rubber Insulated Blanket. Salisbury’s Type II SALCOR® Blankets are of the highest quality available today. They will hold their color and flexibility, and will maintain physical properties and dielectric strength, required by ASTM standard, in the field longer than any other blanket on the market. All Salisbury blankets comply with ASTM D1048 specifications.
General Care & Inspection of Rubber Goods:
Type I Natural (non-ozone resistant) and Type II SALCOR synthetic rubber (resistant to ozone) both provide electrical workers with the highest level of electrical insulating protection. However, in order to maintain this level of protection and ensure long life, it is essential that rubber goods are properly cared for. Before each use, rubber goods should be visually inspected for holes, embedded wires, rips or tears, ozone cutting, UV checking and signs of chemical deterioration. For additional information, refer to ASTM F1236, standard guide for visual inspection of electrical protective rubber products.
