FABRICS FOR EXTREME TEMPERATURES
Texfire has been developing and manufacturing flame retardant fabrics for high temperatures for more than 20 years. Fabrics for extreme temperatures are technical fabrics developed to resist working temperatures from 300ºC up to 1,300ºC. These fabrics are constructions of multi-layered fabric with special coatings to enhance its thermal performance or fabrics reinforced with inox steel filaments to improve its mechanical features, being able to withstand the exposition to extreme temperatures during long periods of time, maintaining its structural integrity.
Thanks to the use of several materials like fiberglass, silice or pre-oxidized polyacrylonitrile fibers, and in combination with different chemical coatings like vermiculite or silicate calcium, fabrics able to resist extreme temperatures are obtained.
Fabrics for high temperatures are destined to sectors like in foundries, petrochemistries, or those sectors where there is some production process with high temperatures like ovens in cement industries or in welding tasks, among others. Also they are optimal fabrics to use in situations where a protection before high temperatures is needed, combining the action of a thermal barrier with a thermal shield, like being the case of a drop-down shelter for forest firefighters, a flame retardant protector for works of art of a custom-made case for a volcano explorer drone.
