Newtex is an authorized distributor of 3M Nextel Ceramic Tapes

3M™ Nextel™ Tapes are woven from 3M™ Nextel™ Continuous Filament Ceramic Oxide Fibers, designed to meet the toughest thermal, mechanical and electrical performance requirements.

Nextel™ Tapes are permeable, lightweight, flexible and chemically inert. They have stabilized edges due to weave design and are designed to maintain their flexibility at high temperatures. Nextel™ Tapes are ideal for insulating or protecting tubes, pipes (or other structures that can be wrapped) in high temperature applications. 

Newtex is an authorized distributor of 3M™ Nextel™ Tape AP-18 and 3M™ Nextel™ Tape BP-18. The AP-18 ceramic tape is woven from Nextel 312 while the BP-18 ceramic tape is woven from Nextel 440, which provides more strength and thermal resistance than the Nextel 312. The AP-18 Tape is available in 1.0” or 2.0” widths. The BP-18 Tape is available in a 2.0” width. Both styles are 18 mils thick.

In addition to Nextel™ Tapes, Newtex is also an authorized distributor of 3M™ Nextel™ Fabrics, 3M™ Nextel™ Sleeving, and 3M™ Nextel™ Sewing Threads, Yarns, and Roving.
