Ceramic Braided Packing

Ceramic Braided Packings are manufactured from high performance ceramic fibre yarns reinforced with either an inconel or glass reinforcement.

Ceramic yarns are produced on traditional textile machinery by carding high purity 1260°C grade ceramic fibres with a percentage cellulose fibre to assist in the processing. The yarns are then spun with the relevant re-inforcing media to improve the tensile strength at extended temperatures. The organic content will burn off at temperatures above 200 °C without affecting the properties of the ceramic fibre.
Adequate ventilation should be present when using the product.

Ceramic Braided Packings are suitable for use at temperatures up to 1260 °C, depending on the application.
Resistant to most chemicals except phosphoric and hydrofluoric acids and concentrated alkalis.
Are non combustible.
Have a low thermal conductivity.
Resistant to thermal shock.

Reinforcement: E= Glass Filament.
