High Temperature Textiles

High Temperature Manipulation with technical Textile

High Temperature Textile Fibres

Final Advanced Materials supplies a range of technical textile fibres which are suitable for high-temperature applications. The production team can adapt to any requirements, ranging from the simple supply of materials to direct installation in the workshop, or product development.

Textile fibres are available in various materials, for the satisfaction of all thermal requirements:

Other materials are available for highly specific applications. Our products are used in the automobile, marine, military, rail and aeronautical industries.

Benefits of Textile Fibres

In comparison with rigid solutions, textile fibres provide numerous benefits:

  • High flexibility
  • An extensive product range
  • Ease of use
  • Lightweight properties
  • Very good insulation capability
  • Very good quality/price ratio

Applications of Textile Fibres

  • Insulation of industrial valves, flanges and pipes
  • Exhaust cladding: retention of the hottest gases, in the interests of more rapid evacuation
  • Turbo protection: maintenance of temperature for the achievement of a more
  • favourable turbine response time
  • Protective thermal matting for turbines, pumps and engines
  • Sealing gaskets for furnaces, kilns and flanges
  • Protective thermal screening
  • Anti-projection protective screening

Production in our Assembly Workshop

We have the facility for the production of flexible insulating matting and components in 2D or 3D, using our range of technical textiles. Variants of these fabrics are available with coatings (silicone, PTFE, vermiculite, etc.), one aluminium-coated side or one self-adhesive surface. These options ensure the fulfilment of all requirements. Textile fibres are employed in the assembly of matting. The conventional composition of matting is generally comprised of three parts:

  • a technical fabric cover,
  • a filling of flexible fibrous insulation,
  • stitching with a technical yarn.

It is possible to produce a specific closing system, according to the application concerned. Specifically, we can supply the following high-temperature closing systems:

  • eyelet and fastener,
  • hook-and-loop fastening tape,
  • hooks and metal wire lacing,
  • strap and buckle.

  The addition of reinforcing inserts permits the full customization of the product:

  • PTFE elements,
  • metal frame,
  • injection of silicone seals into textiles.

Our products are tailor-made, in order to ensure perfect compliance with the intended application. Numerous factors are involved in the production of textile fibre matting:

  • the continuous service temperature,
  • mechanical and chemical constraints,
  • the operating environment,
  • health,
  • safety.

Our technical facilities permit the production of prototypes, together with the manufacture of series production components:

  • industrial sewing machines
  • digital tracing table
  • digital cutting table
  • templates
  • injection system for flexible elements
  • riveting
  • adhesive bonding
