MAXWOOL CERAMIC FIBER TEXTILES
MaxWool Textiles are a family of ceramic ﬁber materials used for a variety of high-temperature applications.
The products included in our textiles line are rope, braid, woven cloth, and tape.
MaxWool ropes and braids are resilient ceramic fiber materials used for a variety of high-temperature (2,300°F/1,260°C) gasketing, packing and sealing applications. Density by product varies, with ropes having lower density and braids having higher density, which relates to compressibility.
Ropes are available in two compositions; those made from wicking and those made from yarn. The rope made from wicking has fewer plies (three) and is somewhat softer, while the rope made from yarn has many smaller plies and is slightly denser.
Braids are significantly denser than ropes and are available in both round and square configurations.
All ropes and braids are available in diameters from ¼” to 2” and are shipped in cartons.
MaxWool woven textiles, produced from ceramic fiber yarn, are available in two forms: cloth and tape. These products are suitable for a variety of industrial applications with a maximum use temperature of 2,300°F (1,260°C).
These products contain about 20% organic fiber to accommodate the weaving process and to enhance handling strength, and these organic elements will burn out at 400°F (204°C). Typically used for wrapping or curtains, these products are versatile and highly insulating. Both product types are reinforced with metal alloy wire to retain strength after the organic elements are burned out.
