Ceramic Plaited Sleeving

Braided from ceramic fibre yarns, reinforced with either a wire or glass filament. Yarns are produced on traditional textile machinery by carding high purity 1260°C ceramic fibre 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 firing. Where tensile strength is important the temperature limitations of the reinforcing media should be considered.

Ceramic fibres are suitable for use at temperatures up to 1260°C dependant on application.
Resistant to most chemicals except phosphoric acid, hydrofluoric acid and strong Alkalis.
Are non combustible.
Have low thermal conductivity.
Resistant to thermal shock.

Temp Limitations: >E= Glass Filament suitable for temperatures up to 550°C.
Nickel chrome alloy Wire Suitable for temperatures up to 1091°C.

Typical Applications: Cable and pipe protection.
