Fiberfrax® Woven Textile product forms are durable, high-temperature ceramic fiber fabrics that are well-suited for industrial applications requiring strong, yet flexible, high-temperature resistant materials. They are noted for their superior insulating ability to 1260°C (2300°F). All textiles contain approximately 20% organic fiber added during the carding process to produce roving. The roving is further processed into yarn for weaving into Fiberfrax cloth, tape and sleeving.
The woven textile product family is a unique group of high temperature ceramic fiber fabrics useable in a wide variety of industrial applications. It is composed of three basic product lines: Fiberfrax® cloth, tape and sleeving; Fibersil™ cloth and Flexweave™ 1000 cloth and tape. Fiberfrax yarn, the core material from which Fiberfrax cloth, tape and sleeving is woven, is also available as a product form.
Fiberfrax textiles have excellent resistance to thermal shock, corrosive attack and breakdown due to mechanical vibration and stress. They also exhibit excellent chemical stability, resisting attack from most corrosive agents.
