Special properties of heat-resistant fabric
Thermal fabric is a material obtained by interlacing fibers of various nature.
Fibers could be:
Materials based on natural fibers have heat resistance due to the use of special refractory impregnations.
Depending on the composition, heat-resistant fabric has a number of specific properties.
Characteristics of heat-resistant fibers
Carbon materials are an interweaving of fine fibers of carbon. They are distinguished by strength, resistance to breaking loads, chemical inertness, and low specific gravity.
Quartz fibers have increased resistance to chemical and thermal effects.
Heat-resistant fabric based on asbestos fibers has good electrical and thermal insulation characteristics, fire resistance.
Aramids are durable, heat-resistant synthetic fibers that are resistant to various aggressive environments. They have thermal insulation properties. There are such types of aramid fibers:
- para-aramids (withstand temperature loads from 250 up to 370 ° C)
- meta-aramids (from 370 up to 400 ° C)
- aramid copolymers (up to 350 ° C)
Silica fabric is heat-resistant and can withstand up to 1000 °C. It is used as a heat-insulating material. It differs in fine fire resistance, chemical resistance and influence of biological factors (mould).
Fiberglass is a thin thermal fabric with a special protective impregnation. It is used as a technical material and differs in the increased durability, elasticity and softness.
Polyesters are non-combustible materials with a special treatment. Polyester fabrics are fully synthetic and blended, they have a number of undeniable advantages:
- functionality and practicality
- wear resistance and durability
- hygiene and safety
In case of fire splashes or molten metal sparks, the fabric begins to char without releasing hazardous substances.
Applications of heat resistant fabric
Heat resistant fabric is popular in various industries and domestic use. It has following applications:
- in construction
- in chemical industries
- in electric power industry
- in thermal insulation
- in mechanical engineering
- in the petrochemical industry
Thermal fabric is characterized by high functionality. You can buy heat-resistant fabric for the production of shoes, workwear (industrial, military, firefighter uniforms), tailoring thermal clothing, and use it as a lining material.
