Texotherm Fabrics

 

Texotherm  fabrics are woven from texturised E-glass yarn, which improves the insulation properties of the finished product. None of the fabrics used can be respired and all products are free of asbestos.

Texotherm fabrics are designed for continuous temperatures of up to 550°C and are non-flammable. Texotherm fabrics have excellent electrical insulation properties and show high thermal stability.

General applications:

  • Pipe insulation
  • Mattress build-up
  • Coverings for forgings
  • Insulation of heating and cooling processes
  • Fire blankets
  • Protection against molten metal splash
  • Heat shield linings
  • Furnace curtains

Wovitherm Fabrics

Wovitherm fabrics are woven from smooth filament E-glass yarn. Wovitherm fabrics are soft, strong and extremely drapable which makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.

General applications:

  • Welding blankets
  • Safety curtains
  • Fire blankets
  • Welding screens
  • Electrical insulation
  • Smoke curtains
  • Thermal insulation
  • Insulation mattress covering
  • Composite Reinforcement

750°C - 800°C

Wovitherm HT75 Fabrics

 

Wovitherm HT75 fabrics are inorganically treated to enhance the maximum operating temperature to 800°C. A green temperature resistant dye is used to identify these fabrics.

General applications:

  • Hose insulation
  • Industrial Furnace curtains
  • Tarpaulins
  • Exhaust insulation
  • Conveyer belts
  • Protective clothing
  • Welding protection covers

1100°C

Texotherm HT110V Fabrics

Texotherm HT110V fabrics are coated with special formulations to increase the maximum operating temperature to 1100°C. This offers the user a low cost substitute for silica and ceramic products, where the more expensive products may be more receptive to damage.

Texotherm HT110V products, with superior resistance to abrasion and excellent tensile strength, also serve as an excellent replacement for all asbestos products.

The standard colours available are black and golden brown.

General applications:

  • Heavy Duty protection from molten metal splash
  • High temperature curtains
  • Heat shields
  • Welding blankets and curtains
  • Furnace Insulation
  • Fire doors

*HT110V increases in rigidity when subjected to high temperatures and is not recommended were fabric flexibility is a prerequisite at ultra high temperatures. See Texosil™ for alternative.

Texosil fabrics

Texosil fabrics are produced from chemically treated E-glass yarn.
Texosil fabrics contain 96% silicon dioxide which enables the fabric to withstand temperatures of up to 1100°C.

General applications:

  • Welding splatter protection
  • Stress relieving blankets
  • Valve covers
  • Cable and hose protection
  • Cable Tray Protection
  • Protective Clothing
  • Gasket material
  • Flexible connectors
  • Furnace curtains
