Textiles

Unifrax offers a broad selection of ceramic fiber textiles, ropes and braids used for high-temperature packing and gasketing applications.

The woven textile product family is a unique group of high temperature ceramic fiber fabrics useable in a wide variety of industrial applications with insulating ability to 1260°C (2300°F). The woven textile product family 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

Fiberfrax® textile products are durable, high temperature, ceramic fiber packing materials that are well-suited for industrial applications. They are noted for their superior insulating and sealing ability to 1260°C (2300°F). These materials contain approximately 20% organic carrier fiber to facilitate the carding process. The carrier fiber burns out at a low temperature with no effect on the ceramic fiber properties

Fiberfrax ropes are twisted multi-ply ceramic fiber packing manufactured from Fiberfrax wicking. Standard 3-ply rope is a low density, highly compressive product form. HD rope is up to 9-ply and provides increased compression resistance and strength and is approximately 40-65% denser than regular Fiberfrax rope.

Fiberfrax braids are used where high density and resistance to compression and mechanical abuse are required, such as in packing applications. Round and square versions are available.
