REFRASIL® Silica-Based Woven Textile products have been specifically designed for high temperature use.
REFRASIL® products are amorphous silica woven fabrics, textiles, non-woven blankets, and bulk fiber and fibers designed for high temperature use.
The REFRASIL® product line is available in a variety of product forms: Woven Fabrics, Woven Tapes, Non-woven Blankets, Bulk Fiber, Modules, Braiding Yarns, and other specialty forms such as Sleeving, Rope Gasket, and Cord.
REFRASIL® textiles provide excellent thermal and acoustic protection. These high-temperature resistant textiles products insulate and provide continuous protection in environments up to 1800°F (982°C), while maintaining their strength and flexibility.
- REFRASIL® “Irish” Woven Fabric contains a special coating that provides exceptional functioning when higher temperature performance, up to 2300°F (1260°C), is required
- REFRASIL® Non-woven Felts are available in a specially processed version that provides higher resistance to residual shrinkage (<1%) and degradation in extreme environments.
- REFRASIL® products can withstand excursions to 2900°F (1593°C) with minimal embrittlement and shrinkage.
- REFRASIL® products are available in > 96% silica content. They resist oxidation, most corrosive solutions and chemicals, and they present no known health hazard.
- Applications for REFRASIL® products range from welding blankets to satellite shrouds, firewalls to aircraft insulation, furnace curtains to thermal couple insulation wrap.
