Supporting continuous operating temperatures of 2300°F (1260°C) with peak temperatures to 3000°F (1650°C), extremely flexible silica Cloth will resist molten metal splashing, welding splatter, direct flame impact and are resistant to thermal shock. Besides these excellent qualities, Silica Fabrics are highly resistant to corrosion and deterioration caused by chemicals, have good electrical insulation capabilities and remain flexible and drapable at high temperatures.
Silica Fiber Products are highly used in the iron metallurgy industry, industrial furnaces, electric ovens, boilers, stoves, chimneys, gaskets, sealing joints, industrial insulation, various uses at high temperatures insulation, refractory paddings, gaskets and blankets, protection from flame, splashes of molten metal, excessive heat, compensators.
