High temperature fabrics for the fabrication of welding protection, insulation blankets, and PPE
3M Nextel Ceramic Insulation Fabrics are woven from continuous filament ceramic oxide fibers and represent a major advancement in refractory fiber technology.
Zetex and ZetexPlus woven fiberglass fabrics provide thermal insulation, acoustic insulation, and protection from heat and fire.
Z-Flex aluminized fabrics are used as heat shields to protect from extreme radiant heat, high temperatures, sparks, slag, and molten metal splash.
Z-Block flame retardant fabrics are commonly used in fire protection systems like fire containment covers and fire curtains.
Z-Shield acrylic coated welding fabrics are used as welding blankets and welding curtains for spark protection and welding safety.
Z-Tuff silicone fabrics and Z-Tuff PTFE fabrics are designed for abrasion and heat resistance and commonly used as pipe insulation jackets to protect from outdoor elements.
Z-Sil is a flexible, high-silica fabric for the most extreme temperatures. Silica fabric is commonly used in welding blankets and welding curtains for stainless steel welding applications.
Z-Fil filament fiberglass fabrics are strong and lightweight heat resistant fabrics commonly used as facing material in insulation pads and gasketing applications.
Aramid fabrics provide superior abrasion resistance. Commonly known by the brand name “Kevlar®”, these high temperature fabrics are often used in safety gloves and other flame retardant clothing.
