Refractory fabrics are made of refractory yarns that are made of refractory fibers. Refractory fabrics have acceptable chemical and mechanical strength, high heat tolerance, good performance in various weather conditions and good pressure tolerance.
Dielectric properties and sound absorption in fireproof fabrics cause sound and electrical insulation, sometimes a layer of steel and steel wire or aluminum sheet can be added to increase the advantages of the fabric.
Some of the same characteristics of fireproof fabrics are:
Ability to control pressures
Maintain dimensional stability and structure at low temperatures, acceptable operation at high temperatures
Do not emit any toxic fumes against the fire and non-combustible
Has acceptable and stable mechanical endurance in the face of wear and tension
Maintain high efficiency in alkaline and acidic environments
Has good resistance to oxidation and chemical corrosion
Some applications of refractory fabrics such as gasket production, insulation of industrial and domestic stoves, electrical insulation, insulation blanket, exhaust cover, furnace body cover.
In this part of the article, we will examine the most prominent refractory fabrics below:
Silk fabric: This fabric withstands temperatures up to 300 degrees Celsius and has a low coefficient of friction, which is due to the presence of Teflon in this product.
Asbestos fabric: Asbestos fabric has various advantages, the most prominent of which are; We say, heat tolerance, because this product can withstand temperatures up to 550 degrees Celsius.
Fiberglass fabric: This light weight product can withstand extreme temperatures up to 650 degrees Celsius.
Carbon fabric: Carbon fabric has the ability to control pressures, high heat tolerance and good flexibility, which among all these advantages, the strength of this product is one of its best advantages.
Silicone fabric: This fabric is composed of silicone resin and glass fibers that this product can withstand temperatures up to 650 degrees Celsius and in addition, this product has a very long shelf life.
Fiber ceramic fabric: It is the best product in terms of heat tolerance because this product withstands very high temperatures up to 1260 degrees Celsius and maintains its function in environments with high temperatures.
This fabric has excellent chemical and mechanical resistance, which these advantages have made this product widely used.
