Fiberglass Fabrics - Plain - Premium Grade
1200°F / 648°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
FlameShield™ high temperature, heat and flame resistant thermal insulating fiberglass fabric is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C. It is used to protect equipment, wires, cables, hoses, tubing and pipes. This high temperature fabric provides thermal insulation and personnel protection.
These high temperature fabrics are often used to fabricate insulated equipment covers, welding curtains and blankets.
Plain fabrics contain no binders, and when handled will fray at the edges. The edges can be folded and sewn to improve handling and reduce fray.
Another method to improve handling of these fabrics, especially in lighter grades, is to spray the edges with a light misting of adhesive, such as acrylic or silicone based. Hairspray also works satisfactorally.
This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable.
