High temperature insulating fabrics made of ceramic and glass fibres are woven into a variety of goods. Both grades exhibit good chemical stability, resistance to oils, solvents, and thermal shock, as well as an absence of bacterial development. They are popular for usage in a variety of industrial applications since they are also highly lightweight, non-combustible, and adaptable.
To increase tensile strength and mechanical qualities at high temperatures, spun ceramic fibre products are frequently mixed with glass or wire reinforcing media. Compared to their glass fibre equivalents, they offer a better temperature rating, less thermal conductivity, and more steam resistance. Although the glass or wire reinforcements are rated lower, this material is appropriate for applications up to +1260°C.
