Fiberfrax® 6000 Series fibers are manufactured from kaolin clay rather than high-purity alumina-silica raw materials in Fiberfrax 7000 Series fibers. Since kaolin is a mined material, it may contain impurities such as Fe2O3, TiO2, and Na2O. Even with these impurities, Fiberfrax 6000 Series fibers can provide an effective solution in many vacuum-forming and related applications.
Some of the unique properties these fibers offer are:
Fiberfrax fibers are available in a variety of chemistries and diameters which can service a wide variety of applications. In addition, these fibers can be further modified by chopping or by removal of the unfiberized particles (called shot). Lubricants can also be added to the fiber to enhance fiber properties.
