With resistance to temperatures up to approximately 1100℃, this fabric is used for the production of fireproof protective mats, fireproof curtains and fire blankets. It is also used as protective material for welding, a filter for molten metal, for dust collection in high temperature gas media, and filtration in high temperature liquids etc.
High temperature properties:
1) Soft point: nearly 1700℃
2) Can work for 10 minutes at 1450℃
3) Stays stable at 1600℃ for 15 seconds
4) Long service period service at 1000℃ for working temperature
5) Low thermal conductivity, good chemical stability, good electric insulation, low thermal shrinkage
Silica cloth is a high performance textile fabric that is have 96% SiO2, flexible fabric designed for use where severe temperature conditions exist.
It used for thermal insulating and heat protection. It will not burn, rot or deteriorate and resist most acids. It will keep good state when it works at 1100℃ for a long time.Remarks: it works at 1400℃ for 15 minutes above and works at 1700℃ for 15 seconds above.
The product is primarily used in hot work such as welding and burning operations. It is also useful for thermal and electrical insulation in stress relieving. It is available in a wide variety of fabricated forms including curtains, seals, pads, cloth and hemmed blankets.
