  • Maximum flexibility
  • Chemical resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Coatings include plain, heat-treated, aluminized, vertex, neoprene
  • Non-flammable
  • Heat-treated complies to Mil spec MIL-C-20079H
  • Excellent dimensional stability

Potential Applications

  • Welding curtains and drop cloths

  • Fire blankets
  • Pipe lagging, flange and valve covers, insulation covers
  • Expansion joints
  • Pipe and hose wrapping
  • Heat barriers
  • Oven door seals

    • Welding blankets and drop cloths
    • Expansion joints
    • Safety clothing
    • Chemical/oil molten metal splash guards

    High Temperature Silica Cloth

    When very high heat resistance is critical, silica offers maximum protection

    Material Properties

    Asbestos-free silica fabrics protect personnel and equipment from the extremes of heat and cold from a cryogenic environment of -100°F to a high-heat situation of 3,000°F.

    • Continuous protection to 1,800°F
    • Excursion temp to 3,000°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

    Potential Applications

    • Welding drop cloths
    • Heat shields
    • Furnace curtains
