Fiberfrax® textile products are durable, high-temperature, ceramic fibre packing materials that are well-suited to industrial applications. They are noted for their superior insulating and sealing ability to 1260 °C. These materials contain approximately 20% organic carrier fibre to facilitate the carding process. The carrier fibre burns out at a low temperature with no effect on the ceramic fibre properties.
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.
Fiberfrax textiles have excellent resistance to thermal shock, corrosion and breakdown due to mechanical vibration and stress. They also demonstrate excellent chemical stability, resisting attack from most corrosive agents.
