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.

High Temperature Silica Cloth


For applications where very high heat resistance is required, Intertex silica cloths/tapes/ropes offer maximum protection in the harshest of environments. 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 3000° f. Silica is fireproof and chemical resistant. The ultimate in protection from heat and molten slag. Intertex also offers ceramic wool blanket for extreme temperatures to 3200° f. Ceramic wool insulation is commonly used for lining furnaces and insulation in removable covers.
