Ceramic Fabrics Withstand Extreme Temperatures up to 2300F
Z-Tech™ Ceramic Fabrics are made from an alumino-silicate based refractory fiber. This needled ceramic fabric is suitable for the most extreme high temperature environments due to its low thermal conductivity and good resistance to corrosive chemicals. Because ceramic fabric withstands temperatures up to 2300°F, they are commonly used as high temperature insulation or lining in and around furnaces, boilers, and kilns.
Z-Tech™ Ceramic Fabrics are also available with Inconel wire reinforcement for additional strength. Wire-reinforced ceramic fabrics provide better strength, abrasion resistance, and vibration resistance than standard ceramic fabrics. Newtex also offers Zetex® Steel™ wire-reinforced fiberglass fabrics. Wire-reinforced fiberglass fabrics are stronger than wire-reinforced ceramic fabrics, but ceramic fabric withstands higher temperatures than fiberglass fabric.
Z-Tech™ Ceramic Fabrics and Z-Tech Ceramic / Inconel Wire Fabrics resist operating temperatures up to 1800°F / 982°C and peak temperatures up to 2300°F / 1260°C.
