We have a full range of fabrics in both glass and ceramic. These are available in various
weights and constructions with a variety of coatings, treatments and finishes.
Our range includes thermal insulations, industrial sealing, fire protection, heat protection, welding and personal protection, weather protection equipment and machinery protection.
Glass webbing and ladder tapes are manufactured from air textured filament E glass yarns and provide a high volume of entrapped air and consequent good thermal insulation.
The basic fibres are lightweight, resilient, incombustible and suitable for operation in applications of up to 550°C.
Can be reinforced with Inconel wire if required.
Glass webbing and ladder tapes are resistant to oils, most chemicals and solvents. Will not rot and is unaffected by bacterial growth.
Suitable for temperatures up to 550°C.
Have a medium thermal conductivity.
Hose and cable protection, jointing and seals.
Ceramic fibre woven webbing and ladder tapes are manufactured from high performance ceramic fibre 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.
Are non combustible.
Are suitable for use at temperatures up to 1260°C dependant on application.
Temp Limitations: >E= glass filament suitable for temperatures up to 550°C.
Nickel chrome alloy wire suitable for temperatures up to 1091°C.
Ductwork flange gasketing, furnace / boiler door seal, cable and pipe protection.
Glass fibre is manufactured from air textured filament E glass yarns and provide a high volume of entrapped air and consequent good thermal insulation. The basic fibres are lightweight, resilient, incombustible and suitable for operation in application up to 550°C.
Glass rope lagging is resistant to oils, most chemicals and solvents. Will not rot and is unaffected by bacterial growth.
Is suitable for temperatures up to 550°C and has medium thermal conductivity.
Contact with live steam to be avoided.
Typical Application: Boiler and furnace door Seals.
Ceramic Fibre Filled Rope Lagging
With Glass Braid - Standard
With Glass / Inconel Braid - High Temperature
Standard (Glass Braid)
Supplied in 50m & 30m Coils - 10mm Dia to 30mm Dia, and in 25m Coils 35mm Dia to 70mm Dia. Non standard lengths to order.
Light weight, resilient, high temperature material, with low thermal conductivity; resistant to thermal shock; excellent thermal stability; low heat storage; excellent corrosion resistance.
Resists attack from most corrosive agents with the exception of hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid & concentrated alkali's.
The rope will continue to function after the braiding yarn has melted (at approx 550°C) as long as it is contained.
Suitable for expansion joint packing in boilers, furnaces, kilns, etc., and as a door joint seal in coke ovens.
Density approx 128/160kg per cu.metre
Composition : 100% alumina silica (Max Temp 1260°C).
Braid: Glass yarn
High Temperature (Glass / Inconel Braid)
Supplied in 50m coils 10mm Dia. to 30mm Dia., and in 25m Coils 35mm Dia. to 70mm Dia. Non standard lengths to order.
Details of material as for standard ceramic fibre rope lagging, but the glass / inconel braid will continue to function at temperatures up to approx 1100°C continuous 1400°C max.
Composition: 100% alumina silica
Braid: Glass / Inconel Yarn
