Ceramic Fibre Fabrics

Ceramic fibre woven fabrics are manufactured from high performance ceramic fibres yarns reinforced with either a wire or glass filament. Ceramic fibre yarns are produced on traditional textile machinery by carding high purity 1260°C grade ceramic fibres with a percentage of cellulose fibre to assist in the processing. The yarns are then spun and combined with the relevant reinforcing 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 however adequate ventilation should be provided during this initial heating. Where tensile strength is important the temperature limitations of the reinforcing media should be considered.

Ceramic fibres are resistant to oils, solvents and most chemicals although contact with phosphoric, hydrofluoric acids, and strong alkalis should be avoided.
