A very wide range of industrial applications depend on ceramic fabrics and high-temperature textiles for insulation and temperature resistance. Fiberfrax blankets are reinforced with either wire or glass filament and manufactured from high-performance ceramic fiber yarn. The ceramic fiber yarns are produced by traditional textile machinery using or carding high purity 1260 grade ceramic fibers with a percentage of cellulose fiber. These yarns are spun and combined with a reinforcing media that greatly improves its tensile strength at extended temperatures.
High-temperature textiles and ceramic fibers like FiberFrax blankets are ideal for insolation, prevention of fires, reduced heat conductivity and HVAC systems.
The organic content of these yarns will burn off at temperatures high above 200 degrees Celsius without affecting the core properties of the high-temperature textiles or ceramic fibers. However, it requires an adequate ventilation in the initial heating where tensile strength is important. The temperature limitations of the reinforcing media should also be considered in this process.
The Key Properties of High-Temperature Textiles or Ceramic Fibers
Ceramic fibers have qualities that make them excellent refractory materials and these qualities include high resistance to oils, solvent, and most chemicals. Although contact with Phosphoric hydrofluoric acids and strong alkalis should be avoided. They are also non-combustible materials that are suitable for use at high temperatures up to 1260 degrees Celsius. Ceramic fibers also have low thermal conductivity properties allowing them to be excellent insulation materials.
Typical Applications of High-Temperature Textiles
With all of those excellent properties, ceramic fibers or high-temperature textiles are widely used in various industries for numerous applications. They are used in plenty of operations that involve high heat temperatures and chemical reactions. To get to know some of these processes, here are the typical applications of high-temperature textiles.
- They are used as cover material for tadpole seals
- As furnace entry and zone dividing curtains
- They are also used as cable and pipe protection
- Used in the manufacturing process of high-temperature seals
