Heat Resistant Industrial Textiles

Thermoglass™ 100% Fiberglass:

Intertex’s Thermoglass™ products are made from 100% texturized (woven) fiberglass yarns and are available in cloth, tape, rope and tubing forms for applications requiring high heat resistance to 1000° f. Intertex’s Thermoglass™ fabrics offer the safest, most effective alternative to Asbestos. Our Thermoglass™ products are also available with a vermiculite (Vertex) coating. The Vertex coating adds heat and flame resistance while adding stability and durability over plain fiberglass. A popular choice for welding applications where increased flame and temperature resistance are needed.

  • excursion temp to 3000°f
  • optimal choice for welding applications
  • flexible
  • chemical resistant
  • finishes include silicone coated, aluminized, abrasion resistant coating
  • high temp but low abrasion resistance
  • fireproof
  • electrical insulator
  • low thermal conductivity

Applications:

Welding drop cloths; heat shields; furnace curtains; pipe wrap; insulation and protection of cable lines, tubing and cable; personal protection; heat treat/stress relief insulation; removable covers
