Fiberglass Textiles: Cloth, Tape, Rope and Braid
Fiberglass textile products are made from high temperature E-glass. It has outstanding heat resistance, high tensile strength, low thermal conductivity, and excellent chemical resistance. They are durable, resistant to mildew, and have no hazard to health. Fiberglass textiles are ideal material for various industrial insulation applications. They are a good substitute for asbestos for 1000°F level applications.

CeraTex Ceramic Fiber is alumino-silicate based refractory fiber, white and odorless. With reinforcement carrier (usually high temperature fiber glass), the fiber is made into industrial textile products. CeraTex textiles comes in forms of: Cloth, Tape, Twisted Rope, Square and Braid, Yarn etc.
CeraTex resists temperature as high as 2300°F. This material is lightweight and has very low thermal conductivity. It provides excellent insulation at high temperature. It also resists corrosive chemicals, commonly used acid and alkali. The fiber is strong and abrasive. It can be used in tough environment. CeraTex is a good substitute of asbestos products in many insulation and sealing applications.
