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 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, corrosive attack and breakdown due to mechanical vibration and stress. They also exhibit excellent chemical stability, resisting attack from most corrosive agents.
