Silicone & PTFE Fabrics for Chemical & Moisture Resistance

Our Z-Tuff silicone and PTFE coated products are commonly used as the outer layer in fabricated systems that protect insulated pipes and equipment from the environment. These fabrics are also frequently used in products that protect workers and equipment from heat and fire. They offer superior resistance to chemicals, abrasion, moisture and heat. The PTFE coating provides added toughness and chemical resistance while the Silicone coating provides better UV, water, and abrasion resistance.

The silicone coating can withstand peak temperatures up to 500ºF (260ºC) while the PTFE coating can withstand temperatures up to 600ºF (315ºC). The base fabric beneath the coating is typically filament fiberglass or Zetex texturized fiberglass, which can withstand temperatures up to 1000ºF (540ºC).
