High Temperature Fabrics

From minus 60°C to 1600°C, the high temperature fabrics provide the best heat protection in high-temperature fire protection.

This article will take you to understand the best selection guide for High Temp Fabric.


Under extreme temperatures, countless high temperature fabrics have appeared in history, from hemp cotton to ceramic fiber fabrics, from 100 ° C to 1600 ° C. Finally, the following outstanding ones have been left:


aluminum foil fiberglass fabric

Foil-Faced Insulation(550℃)

Aluminum foil fiberglass cloth is a thermal insulation material of aluminum laminate and woven glass fiber fabric.
Because glass fiber fabric has shallow flame retardant characteristics and R-value, it has powerful thermal insulation performance and fire resistance. However, glass fiber fabrics cannot prevent heat radiation, so aluminum foil lamination plays a significant role. The aluminum foil layer reflects 97% of the radiant heat. The rest of the heat transfer is perfectly blocked by the glass fiber, so this aluminum foil glass fiber fabric is the best choice for steam-heating pipeline insulation.


Silicone Coated Fiberglass Fabric
Silicone Fabric(287℃)
Silicone rubber-coated fiberglass cloth is highly flexible and provides excellent thermal protection. It is also water and oil-resistant, low smoke, and flame-retardant. While the base heat treated fiberglass fabric is rated at 1000°F/550°C, the silicone coating is rated at 550°F/287°C. This makes the material easier to sew, drape and handle.
Another advantage of silicone rubber-coated fiberglass fabric is its good tensile strength and abrasion resistance.
Under the ASTM-D-5035 standard, the tensile strength reaches 53.58kg/cm (200lbs/inch), which means an extreme Wear resistance.
In addition to conventional silicone coated fabrics, you can choose stainless steel reinforced silicone fabrics with higher mechanical strength and flame retardant properties.
It is precise because silicon-coated fiberglass fabric is widely used in insulating blankets, insulation jackets, welding blankets, fire curtains, pipe insulation, and many other fields.


Ceramic Fiber Fabric
Ceramic Fiber Insulation(1200℃)
A ceramic fiber blanket is very suitable for high temp woven fabric.
The working temperature of ceramic fiber can reach 1600℃, so it is very suitable as the lining material of a high-temperature furnace or the insulation wrapping material in an extreme temperature environment.
In addition to high-temperature resistance, ceramic fiber paper has solid chemical resistance commonly used in acid and alkali, including but not limited to acids and concentrated alkalis, hydrofluoric, phosphoric acids, etc.


Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Fabric
Vermiculite Coated Fabric(800℃)
Vermiculite coated e glass cloth are very high-performance fabrics among high temperature fabrics.
Due to the high-temperature resistance of vermiculite coated and the flame retardant ability of glass fiber, it is very suitable for welding protection. Vermiculite coated also has wear-resistant characteristics, so vermiculite glass cloth has extreme resistance in extreme environments. Durability.


High Silica Fiberglass Fabric

Silica Fabric(1000℃)

Silica Fabrics have high strength and abrasion resistance in high temperature heat resistant fabric.
High-purity standard silica fabrics are ideal for heat shields, welding curtains, and insulation blankets because their temperature resistance exceeds 1000°C.
teflon fabric
PTFE-Polytetrafluorethylene can be called "special" because it utilizes the globe. Nothing other plastic product can match its extensive buildings.
HEATERK ® high-performance items commonly include woven glass fibers covered with PTFE.
  • Outstanding temperature level resistance( -170 ° C to +320 ° C).
  • Superb chemical resistance.
  • Superior non-stick surface area for straightforward cleansing.
  • High dielectric stamina.
  • Dimensional security.
  • Immune to UV, hf, and also it.
  • Safe.
acrylic fiberglass coated fabric

Acrylic Coated Fabric(-18℃ - 149℃)

The weave-lock therapy(Polymer covered) tenses the heat-resistant material slightly to decrease tearing throughout construction. The weave-lock completed fiberglass material makes it possible for the individual to effectively reduce, stitch, and punch openings.
  1. Temp resistance-Glass fabric up to 550℃(1000℉)
  2. Acrylic coating up to 260℃(500℉)
  3. Corrosion resistant
  4. Chemical agents resistant
  5. Flexible, abrasion-resistant
  6. Waterproof


para-aramid fabric

Kevlar Fabric (550°C) 

Kevlar (para-aramid) is a heat-resistant, high-strength synthetic fiber, usually spun into rope or cloth, that can be used directly or as a composite material. Thanks to its high tensile strength-to-weight ratio, it is five times stronger than steel and can be used in applications such as racing sails, bulletproof vests, and modern drums that can withstand high impacts. Therefore, Kevlar fabric has not only the characteristics of high-temperature resistance but also highly high strength making it very suitable for working in extreme environments.
Kevlar Fabric (para-aramid) Features:
  • Withstands very high and very low temperatures with few adverse effects, maintaining its strength and elasticity at low temperatures (-196°C (-320.8°F))
  • Lightweight with excellent specific tensile strength
  • Impact and abrasion resistant
  • Easy maintenance and long maintenance time
