Silicone Fabric 725
Our silicone fabric is a Fiberglass base fabric that has been impregnated with a specially formulated silicone rubber compound. The silicone coating adds extended life and provides greater water and oil resistance than uncoated fabrics. It also provides significantly low smoke and flame retardation.
Silicone fabric provides excellent heat resistance allowing the fabric to remain flexible and durable during prolonged use at high-temperatures. It also has outstanding UV durability and is resistant to water, oil, grease, fuel, and many other chemicals.
High-temperature fabrics reduce the risk of fire and heat, protect personnel and equipment, lower energy consumption and save money. These specialty fabrics provide temperature protection from 300˚F up to 2,300˚F. This silicone fabric is manufactured with temperature resistant yarns and can be subjected to various treatments and coatings. They are light, flexible, and versatile, making them suitable for an assortment of extreme heat applications. Applications include pipe lagging, expansion joints, heat shields, machinery protection, and removable insulation pads or blankets.
