Fiberfrax® Flexweave™ 1000 cloth and tape form a product line consisting of exceptionally durable woven textiles made from textured fibreglass. Recommended for continuous use to 538 °C, they are excellent insulators possessing very low thermal conductivity. Flexweave 1000 textiles demonstrate high dielectric strength and a low dielectric constant. They resist abrasion and fraying. In addition to being highly resistant to chemical attack, Flexweave 1000 cloths and tapes are non-toxic, will not flash or smoulder and are reusable. They can also be wetted and are mildew-resistant.
Typical Flexweave 1000 cloth and tape applications:
Flexweave cloth is made from specially treated yarns to prevent unravelling during cutting and manufacturing. Flexweave 1000 cloth is easily sewn and is ideal for manufacturing products such as curtains and blankets. All Flexweave 1000 tape is coated with an acrylic coating to enhance handling properties. The acrylic coating dissipates at 315-370 °C with no adverse effects on the properties of the cloth.
