FyreWrap® Elite® Blanket is a flexible, strong, lightweight, needled blanket. Mechanical needling of the spun fibers eliminates the need for binders in the product’s manufacture and results in a product with high tensile strength. Since Elite Blanket is completely inorganic, the product exhibits no smoke generation or outgassing in service. FyreWrap Elite Blanket combines a low thermal conductivity with excellent performance under transient fire conditions. A series of green dots on the surface of the blanket make identification, tracking, and inspection of Elite Blanket simple on the job site or in the fabrication shop.
FyreWrap Elite utilizes a calcium, magnesium, silicate chemistry to provide thermal insulation at continuous operating temperatures up to 1100°C (2012°F). This fiber chemistry has been combined with Unifrax’s proprietary fiber spinning technology to create a specialty high-temperature blanket with optimized fire protection properties.
