TECHNICAL FABRICS FOR THERMAL INSULATION
Technical Fabrics for Thermal Insulation and for the production of insulating and protection articles for high temperatures such as spark arrestor blankets, insulation cushions, expansion joints, heat protective gloves and clothingFrom the weaving of the yarns are obtained fabrics of different weight, thickness and various types of reinforcement (weaving) and, depending on the uses, they can also be supplied with special surface finish treatments, such as: CARAMEL TEXTILES It consists of a controlled heat treatment, which has the purpose of eliminating the organic substances inside the glass yarns and which gives these fabrics the classic caramel colour, so that they do not develop fumes at the first heating; they are also softer and easier to handle, with limited fraying and less dispersion of fibers right during handling.
OPENED FABRICS Impregnation increases the resistance of the fabric to surface abrasion and limits the fraying as well as the dispersion of dust during handling.
ADHESIVE FABRICS To facilitate the laying of glass fabrics, these are coupled, on one of the two sides, with a double-sided adhesive film (AD); when removing the protective paper, they become self-adhesive and easy to apply. They do not fray when being cut.
ALUMINIZED FABRICS The fabrics are coupled, usually on one side only, with a aluminium film (AL) or an aluminized polyester film (PAL), so as to increase the ability to reflect radiant heat as well as abrasion resistance and fluid resistance. The aluminized glass fabrics do not fray and resist radiant temperatures up to 1000° C, while the delamination temperature in direct contact is about 180° C. For heavy-duty applications, special glues for high temperatures (ALHT) can be used, while for the production of garments we recommend Aluminized Vacuum Fabric (ALV). The fabrics can also be coated (on 1 or 2 sides) with a special silver-added resin (ALFIX) with aluminium powder.
HIGH TEMPERATURE REF: Impregnation with mineral refractory resins which ensures excellent stability at high temperatures and increases the resistance of the fabric to liquid metals, sparks and superficial abrasion. Suitable for making insulating curtains and protective blankets. Brown colour.
HT 75-90: Inorganic finishing for high temperatures. Various colours.
GR: Graphite-based impregnation for high temperature which increases the resistance of the fabric to surface abrasion and limits its fraying and dispersion of dust during handling. Excellent for making custom-made gaskets and textile joints.
SILICONISED FABRICS They are made with coatings, on one or two sides, with elastomer of silicone in different weights and colours depending on the uses. Siliconized glass fabrics have an excellent thermal abatement capacity, good resistance to chemical agents, impermeability to fluids, good mechanical resistance and are widely used for the production of insulating joints and mats going also on outdoor installations subject to weathering.
SG1-2 is grey and can be applied on one or two sides.
SG1-2 is red in colour and can be applied on one or two sides.
TEFLON FABRICS Impregnation with PTFE (TEF) which guarantees excellent chemical resistance even at high temperatures, furthermore the fabric surfaces are smooth and non-adhesive. It is also available with an adhesive side (AD). Teflon-coated fabrics are used in textile joints, conveyor belts, gaskets and anti-adhesive parts. From the weaving of the yarns are obtained fabrics of different weight, thickness and various types of reinforcement (weaving) and, depending on the uses, they can also be supplied with special surface finish treatments.
Applications: Thermal insulation and heat protection of industrial and naval systems. Production of manufactured articles: heat-resistant blankets and curtains, textile joints, insulating cushions, gloves and accident-prevention articles.
Range: Various thicknesses and weights both raw and with surface finishes: Siliconized, Aluminized, Teflon-coated, Graphitized, Reinforced Inox, Vermiculite HT. Range of Fabrics
